Marine Adventure Program

Marine Adventure Program

The mission of this unique GNS program is to foster a love of marine adventure. MAP challenges students at all levels to develop marine skills, as well as their personal confidence and leadership abilities.

From Junior Kindergarten onward, our students are given many opportunities to explore the amazing coastline that lies right outside our doors. Older students are also given the chance to further enhance their skills by travelling to other Vancouver Island destinations, often on overnight excursions. The school offers a variety of programs:

  • Class outings during school days.
  • An afterschool co-curricular program in the Spring Term.
  • Day and overnight summer camps for students aged 11 through 17.
