Join the Nova Scotia Sea School during March break for an adventure unlike any other! The back-country of Nova Scotia in the winter is truly amazing to explore. Few people get outside this time of year and take advantage of how magical it is. Our instructors Lyse Boyce and Richard Leckenby will show you a whole new world of fun and outdoor skills through shelter making, fire building, tracking, cooking and exploring with map and compass. You will learn how to stay toasty in the winter and also have the opportunity to test your survival skills in a culminating solo experience.  
This will be our 11th wilderness March break trip. Each year we introduce our participants to a new part of Nova Scotia and help them to discover personal strengths and gain essential life skills through experiential learning and real challenges in the outdoors! 

No experience required - just an open mind and a willingness to try!

About Nova Scotia Sea School

The Nova Scotia Sea School takes advantage of the Maritime tradition of boats and the sea to help young people discover the values that the sea has taught for generations: courage, leadership, teamwork, generosity, environmental stewardship, humour, respect. We teach hands-on skills in boat-building, boat-handling, navigation and wilderness survival, and above all give youth a chance to live and work together in a challenging situation where each of them has a turn at being in command and in achieving their true potential.
