It’s 7:30 on a still morning down at the Evergreen Brick Works in the Don Valley, minutes from downtown Toronto. There’s a bustle of activity as instructors are busy putting out gear on the brick walkway by the side of Outward Bound Canada’s headquarters. A mountain of sleeping bags, sleeping mats and backpacks forms and soon starts to separate into 12 organized piles in anticipation of the arrival of the new students. It’s Day 1 of the “Youth Urban Expeditions” (YUE) – 5-day adventures that take kids around Toronto camping, cooking and travelling by canoe, foot, TTC bus and GO train. This program was piloted in the summer of 2014 by Outward Bound Canada, bringing youth into the nature that surrounds where they live and, more times than not, didn’t know existed.
