JFWA Events


February 15-18, 2019 (Family Day Long Weekend)  EVENT REGISTRATION OPEN!

This is an invitation to all Adventurers, Challengers, Leaders, Alumni and Parents to join the Outreach Committee for a fun and challenging weekend participating in the 2019 Winter Outreach. This year we have put together a great program in the Canmore area. We will make the beautiful Alpine Club of Canada Clubhouse our base for this adventure – a luxury hostel in the town of Canmore.

The program of activities will include caving at the beautiful ING mine and cave (also known as the Moose Mountain Ice Cave at Bragg Creek, or the Crystal Caves); an adventure by cross-country skis on the trail from Canmore to Banff; a presentation by the dedicated members of the Banff National Park Search and Rescue; evenings will be filled with creating our shirts after a program on the anatomy of a tree! There will be lots of time for playing games, sharing stories and enjoying the company of other members of the JFW family. Don’t forget you will also be assisting with some of the cooking and clean-up activities. This is the only Outreach that we have planned that all the participants will be doing the activities together as a group!

Since this program is not far off the beaten path, it is an excellent introduction to what some of our more backcountry Outreach programs are like. There is room for only 26 participants in this outreach program, so please register as soon as possible (keep checking the AJFWA website as you can register as soon as the site is up and running). The cost will be $190/person. This would also make a wonderful Christmas gift – the gift of adventure!
