2. Can my son/daughter buy lunch on the Mountain during camp?
Our location during lunch time is often in the back country. Please buy lunch ahead of time as part of the program or bring a packed lunch.
3. Can my son/daughter use the bus to get to the Mountain?
Expedition Campers 13-16 years are able to make their way to and from Grouse Mountain as long as signed consent is provided by a parent. It is advised that on the first day of camp parents accompany the teenagers to the Mountain to sign the appropriate waivers and medical forms. If this is not possible parents are welcome to come to Grouse Mountain Guest Services ahead of time to collect waivers and medical forms. Otherwise these can be provided electronically for at-home printing and signing. Waivers must be printed on legal size paper in color.
4. What is in our backcountry survival kit?
- 7-in-one survival kit
- Stuff Sack
- Emergency Blanket
5. What if my son/daughter is scared of heights and does not want to rock climb?
Grouse Mountain has a challenge by choice policy; this means that we will encourage youth to participate in all high ropes activities but always allow youth to make the final decision. We encourage youth to set an aim when climbing, even if this is 3 feet from the ground. When the group is climbing youth will be entertained by learning knots and belay techniques.
6. If my son/daughter already has a back country survival kit, can he/she bring it? Do I get a discount for providing my own kit?
Each camper will be issued with a starter kit as part of the camp cost. But Campers are free to bring additional survival gear with the exception of knives.
The kit is provided as part of the camp cost and designed to work in conjunction with the programs being delivered. For this reason no reduction in price is provided.
