For the Mountains Explorers Experience, we have produced a new structure to the program. Most of the activities will be located outdoors with a wilderness setting where exploration, creativity and sensory learning will develop, stimulating the opportunity for educational play and outdoor learning experiences. All family members are encouraged to participate in our programs as an opportunity to re-discover each other and make new connections.


Family yoga, interpretative walks, interactive storytelling and learning essential wilderness skills such as building fires and how to tie important knots. These are a few of the activities we will be offering that will certainly keep the family engaged.


This program is free for children 4 years old+ and includes babysitting. Adults can also participate for free. Some programs will be based in several locations in Kananaskis and this will require the use of a shuttle for transportation.


Tired of the same old routine? Spend quality time with your family while trying our fresh and fun activities.


It can be challenging to find time to connect regularly as a family in today’s fast-paced society, but doing so is important. Studies reveal that family time can boost kids’ self-esteem, enhance social development, and create strong relational bonds. 


We invite older sibling, parents, aunts and uncles, cousins, basically anyone you can drag along! No matter what age, we guarantee you will enjoy yourself.
