Canadian Olympic Athlete & Take a Hike Volunteer: Laura Brown

Over 100 volunteers support Take a Hike each year; board and committee members, event planners, mentors, and outdoor adventurers to name a few. We're so grateful to all of our volunteers and would like to provide a shout out and share an interview with one very special volunteer: Laura Brown.

From the Mouths of Adventurers

The multi-day expeditions at Take a Hike challenge our students mentally, physically, emotionally & spiritually. Keeping a journal is important to the intense experience-processing of these expeditions and is also a requirement for students’ English academic credits.
