International Programs

This program offers international students a mix of our most popular activities. Green Season programs run May-October, White Season programs run December-April.

Homestay Programs

We understand that Homestay organizations operate on a more personal level and we want to give your students a great field trip! We offer years of experience, smaller group sizes and tailored programs to fit the grade levels and needs of your students and families. This helps ensure everyone receives the attention and learning opportunities they deserve, but still allows us to adapt each situation to your specific needs. Contact us at education@grousemountain.com for details.

Adult/Family Education

Do you remember what it was like as a child to get out of the classroom and go explore? If you never came to Grouse Mountain as a student, here is your perfect opportunity to come see what all the rave is about! Join us as we travel on our Super Skyride high above towering Douglas firs, take in breathtaking views of the city of Vancouver, sparkling Pacific Ocean, Gulf Islands, and snowy mountain peaks! North America's largest aerial tramway system is your gateway to the majestic nature of The Peak of Vancouver. Once up top, we will take your group on an Ecowalk through our beautiful forest to visit a traditional First Nation’s Feasthouse. There you will join our Elder, Kwel-A-A-Nexw, in a drumming circle and experience the power and serenity of traditional drumming. Afterwards, we will visit Cleo and Blizzard, our fascinating resident Owls, or Grinder and Coola, our majestic resident Grizzlies. These wildlife ambassadors will inspire you as we share their story and how they came to live on Grouse Mountain.
