Looking for an exciting adventure this March Break?
We are officially taking registrations for our Take It Outside March break wilderness program. Join the Nova Scotia Sea School during March break for an adventure unlike any other! The backcountry of Nova Scotia in the winter is truly amazing to explore. Few people get outside this time of year and take advantage of how magical it is. Our instructors Richard Leckenby and Melanie Goodday will show you a whole new world of fun and outdoor skills through shelter making, fire building, tracking, cooking and exploring with map and compass. You will learn how to stay toasty in the winter and also have the opportunity to test your survival skills in a culminating solo experience.
This will be our 6th wilderness March break trip. Each year we try to introduce our participants to a new part of Nova Scotia and help them to discover personal strengths and gain essential life skills through experiential learning and real challenges in the outdoors!
