Pursuing Academic Excellence

Outdoor Education


The Incentive Outdoor Program attracts creative and motivated students with a passion for the outdoors.  The fundamental goal of the program is to provide opportunities for students to develop critical thinking skills, creativity, innovative problem-solving and adaptability, both in the classroom and in the larger community. Incentive is an experiential program that develops competent, confident and caring people with strong leadership and outdoor education skills. 

Incentive Outdoor Program offers a strong outdoor education component with a focus on environmental sustainability and stewardship. Students will develop skills in a variety of areas throughout the school year.  These sessions culminate each year in an extended outdoor excursion (e.g. Strathcona Park Lodge) in late May.  This outdoor programming is also integrated with students’ academics, with opportunities for students to explore their relationship and responsibilities to their natural environment while learning outdoor skills.
