2020 YALP Information

We understand that there are many concerns about health and safety currently. Our priority is the participants safety, so we have in place measures to reduce the risk of the spread of COVID-19. These include disinfecting all equipment after each use, staff, volunteers and participants wearing masks (unless unable due to health reasons),  each activity will be one on one with the participant or households, and everyone will be asked if they have shown any symptoms in the last 72hrs and if they have been in contact with a person who has tested positive in the last two weeks, along with where they have traveled to in the last two weeks. 


The cost of the program is an optional $30 for the three weeks, or $10 a week. We understand that due to the current world situation not everyone is able to afford activities, which is why this cost is optional! 


The itinerary for the program is cycling, hiking and canoeing. During the cycling day we will go over bike maintenance and road rules. On the hiking day we will have a variety of trails to go on for a range of abilities from 1st dam. We will go over hiking rules, and environmental education. On the canoeing day the participants will learn the different ways to steer and paddle a canoe along with education on wetland systems!
