Grade 11 students can sign up for a free mountain camp this summer to learn about hiking and climbing in the world famous Bugaboos.
BC Parks and the Conrad Kain Centennial Society are offering a free three-day hiking and mountaineering expedition for 10 students from Cranbrook, Fernie, Creston, Kimberley, Invermere and Golden, on July 20 to 22.
Bugaboo Provincial Park, situated in the Purcell Mountains of southeast British Columbia, continues to draw climbers from around the world to its airy, glacier-sculpted granite spires. With many peaks over 3,000 metres in elevation the Bugaboos offer awe inspiring mountain and glacier terrain.
To win a place, compose a short essay about why you think parks are important to you and your community, with some background on yourself that reflects why you’d like to become a part of the “Teen Bugaboos” team, and send it, along with any queries to firstname.lastname@example.org by June 7.
