The Fraser-Cascade Mountain School is an outdoor experience program run by School District 78 (Fraser-Cascade) in British Columbia, Canada. We offer all-season outdoor excursions to students from grades 6 to 12 in Boston Bar Elementary Secondary, Hope Secondary, C.E. Barry Intermediate, Silver Creek Elementary, Kent Elementary, Agassiz Elementary Secondary and Harrison Elementary Schools. We have been providing safe, quality, professional outdoor experiences to adolescents for more than 20 years. We are grateful to the Skagit Environmental Endowment Commission and to the Hope Mountain Centre for Outdoor Learning for significant and ongoing financial support over the years - our program would not exist without them.
Our backyard is the Skagit Valley, Manning Provincial Park, the Fraser Canyon, Harrison Lake and the amazing Coquihalla. From the Coast Mountain to the Cascades, from the Fraser Canyon to the U.S. border at Hozomeen, we hike, camp, climb, snowshoe, explore and learn. Our summer courses are popular and well attended.
During our autumn 2012 hiking and our 2013 snowshoe season, hundreds of adolescents and their parents spent a full day hiking with the Mountain School.
We've just posted our Fall of 2013 Hiking Schedule - please, join us on an excursion.
Our young people - actively engaged in the outdoors!
