Thank You for Actually Caring About Us

Before I joined Take a Hike, in simple terms, I was lost. I failed most of my classes in Grade 11, probably because I never went. I spent most of my time smoking weed with my friends and crying over how unfortunate my life was. I did not have any motivation or inspiration to change, I did not want any.

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.
