Great Big Adventure Life Skills Program

In January of each year, a select group of people meet and collectively plan a team goal swim in the traditional territory of the Heiltsuk Nation in the Great Bear Rainforest . They set in motion a team training plan and meet each month to plan their journey to the Great Bear Rainforest.

The program includes weekly open water swim practice and month life skills planning sessions and runs from January to July each year. Through the program participants plan their training, travel, clothing, meals, activities and fundraising.

Here’s a look back at the swim from the first year we ran the program.
