CBRG Youth to Ottawa!

We are very grateful to receive an invitation from Historica Canada's  Encounters With Canada to coordinate a group of our CBRG teens to visit Ottawa for one week! Our teens will be going with a group of young people from Gladstone Secondary School, an award winning East Vancouver School  famous for it's Robotics and Arts programs.

Encounters with Canada is a program that brings outstanding young people together to spend one week in Ottawa at the Terry Fox Centre.  This youth forum includes 100 young people living in a dormitory setting with experienced Canadian teachers as chaperones.  Together, they explore Ottawa and look at future career options and share their hopes and dreams of a better Canada.  Our teens will get a chance to be ambassadors for Camosun bog in a youth forum with young people from all over Canada!  They will get to know Canadians of their age group and visit a Wildlife Preserve.

Education Boardwalk

Bog education Boardwalk started with thoughts of an interpretive walk where visitors could have guided access to the bog surface. Now the vision has begun to be reality thanks to the generosity and support of Pacific Parklands, Metro Vancouver, and Pacific Spirit Park Society.

Teens in Camosun bog

Teenagers are regular bog volunteers, led by mentors who are seasoned crazy boggers.  They provide the muscle to wrestle with stubborn tree stumps and they are amazing bog ambassadors for community events!
