Take a Hike program
Here is an amazing and inspiring program I just heard about. It is called the
Take a Hike Program. Here is the description in their words:
“The Take a Hike program is a unique program made possible by a partnership
between the Take a Hike Youth at Risk Foundation and the Vancouver Board of
Education. The program is based at John Oliver Secondary School and focuses on at-risk youth aged 15-19, grades 10-12″.
As we all know, there have always been children and teens that have just not
been able to cope with the education system for a myriad of reasons. This program
is designed to …”address the learning difficulties and social/emotional needs of youth
who are not able to cope in regular high school classes.”
Students will learn new coping skills by participating in outdoor activities such as:
canoeing, hiking, backpacking, orienteering, camping, snow shoeing and ropes courses.
The Take a Hike Program is available for students ages 15-19 and grades 10, 11 and 12.
Address: John Oliver Secondary School 530 East 41st Avenue, Vancouver, B.C. V5W 1P3

Gogo Bonkers loves hearing about such programs. We know and have experienced the
healing wonders of Mother Nature. And we continue to seek her wisdom, solace and
love. Our album Love the Land was written by the inspiration Mother Nature offered
to our collective muse through trees whispers, creek burbles and soundless snowflakes.
And we continue to hope that our musical message of respecting Mother Nature will
reach this generation of youth and help to guide them through this complex jungle of
distracting technologies and disappearing wilderness.
