Between Friends Adventurers
Between Friends is not offering in-person programming until further notice. Please check out our online WeConnect programming, At-Home Resources, as well as our Special Events!
Between Friends Adventurers is offered for adults ages 18 and older who would like to participate in structured group trips. Throughout the year, participants take excursions varied from one to five days in length. These may include the adrenaline inducing adventure activities like whitewater rafting in Banff. This program runs in two streams: Day Trippers & Vacationers.
Day Trippers is the next step after Between Friends Camp Bonaventure. Participants ages 18 to 24 can register in four 1-week sessions, Monday to Friday 9:00am – 4:00pm during the month of August. Day Trippers sessions can include swim days, field trips, boating, and themed day activities.
Vacationers offers the opportunity to enjoy a relaxing break from the usual, or an adventurous getaway. Groups of eight to 10 participants will go on excursions that range from rustic camping overnights to city tours. The participant to staff ratio is a minimum of 1:3. If required, aides are welcome to attend. All trips are wheelchair accessible.
All trips (except Day Trips) have a standard 9:00am drop off and 4:00pm pick up. Information regarding pick up and drop off locations and times for all trips will be provided at least two weeks prior to the trip date.
Many activities and campgrounds are located in the wilderness. Groups will always maintain a safe and respectful distance from any wildlife. Activities are subject to change due to inclement weather.
Between Friends will ensure that every adult with a wish to attend Vacationers is granted the opportunity. If required, we offer further fee assistance and payment plans. To discuss your alternatives, please contact Heather at 403-930-3853.
Please Note – Because of the high demand for Vacationers trips and the limited number of spaces we can accommodate, the registration process is changing: Participants who attend the Vacationers Spring Trip will not be given priority when registering for the Vacationers Fall Trip. Participants will be placed on a wait list and contacted if spaces are available. Vacationers Fall Trip details will be released later in the year.
