Educational Field Trips

Not just another field trip, Adventures in Education Field Trips are unforgettable learning experiences at the Peak of Vancouver.

Adventures in Education Field Trips

Bring your class for a wide variety of dynamic, educational and interactive mountain field trip that include science, social studies and recreational components. These programs help teachers meet curriculum guidelines while providing students with hands-on, motivating and fun experiences. Field trips offered include wildlife education, First Nations' cultural experiences, summer programs, and recreational activities including ski and snowboard lessons, outdoor ice skating, nature hikes, guided snowshoe tours, and Peak of Christmas festivities. 

We love being outdoors and have worked hard over the last two years redesigning all of our curriculums so that we can teach outside whenever possible. We are so excited that the redesign of B.C.’s curriculum aligns well with our love of outdoor spaces and hands on learning. We still have the option of indoor class space during inclement weather, but look forward to sharing our knowledge with your students in the natural beautiful setting of Grouse Mountain.
