Exploring the Great Outdoors: Grade 10 Wilderness Tour

Embarking on an unforgettable adventure, our Grade 10 Outdoor Education students set out on a captivating wilderness tour led by Mr. Bemrose, Ms. Drinnan, and Mr. Crowley. This immersive experience involved a 2-day, 1-night rafting and white water experience.

The classes broke into two groups and participated in a day of rafting down the Ottawa River with experienced guides from Wilderness Tours Rafting Company followed by a day of hiking down the shores of the Ottawa, across the beautiful landscape to view the rapids from the shoreline. In the evening, students used camp stoves to cook a delicious dinner and then capped the day off with s'mores around the campfire. 

This experience took them deep into the heart of nature, where they challenged themselves physically and mentally and further cultivated their love for the outdoors. 

"A great trip." - Andre '25 
"It was a GOOD kind of adrenaline, not too scary, but still a lot of fun." - Kate '25
"It was the best trip of the year." - Antonio '25

As the tour came to a close, our Grade 10 students returned with a renewed sense of confidence and a collection of memories that will last a lifetime. The wilderness tour not only provided an unforgettable experience but also instilled in them a love for nature and a desire to continue exploring the great outdoors.

"Wilderness Tours provided the classes with excellent accommodations, experienced guiding and safety measures, and an overall excellent experience. The Outdoor Education Department is keen to continue this trip and hopefully make it an ongoing LCS tradition in years to come." - Mr. Crowley
