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

Our field trips offer wildlife and habitat education, First Nations' cultural experiences, and recreational activities that include ski and snowboard lessons, outdoor ice skating, nature hikes, guided snowshoe tours, and Peak of Christmas festivities. Our motto is safe, fun, easy! We put safety first, always, then fun for the kids and easy for the teachers. We are so excited that the redesign of B.C.’s curriculum aligns well with our love of outdoor spaces and hands on learning. Our Educators have worked hard over the last two years redesigning our curriculums so that we can teach outside whenever possible, and so that our programs align with the Ministry of Education’s “Big Ideas”. 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.
