EcoQuest is a 2-credit ecotourism and outdoor adventure program integrating the principles of outdoor and nature travel, guiding, and the exploration of our local region from a tourism perspective. This two-credit program is designed for students who intend to pursue a career focusing on travel, guiding, parks management, wildlife and nature conservation, or outdoor activities and leadership. As part of the program, students will learn the principles of ecotourism and outdoor activities while in a classroom setting. Students will then apply their learning to a variety of day trips, a winter camping excursion, and a local cycling trip. The course culminates with a back country wilderness canoe trip. Throughout the program, students will work toward certifications in Standard First Aid, ORCKA Canoe Tripping, and Search and Rescue.
