That location is within walking distance to the ski village, hiking trails and mountain biking.

“We are thrilled to bring even more adventure to the Okanagan in partnership with Big White Resort as we offer the first Big White Kids Adventure Camp,” said Lyndie Hill, co-owner of Hoodoo Adventures.

“We’ve been running extremely successful camps in Penticton for many years and we are excited at the opportunity to expand to an area where there are so many more outdoor recreation experiences to explore.

“We get amazing feedback from the parents of our campers because we return their kids educated, experienced and most importantly exhausted. We are excited to share our passion for the outdoors with kids at Big White this season, it is an amazing opportunity for us and for the families in the valley.”

Learning outcomes include leave no trace principles, a sense of environmental stewardship, ecology of the Okanagan, leadership skills, adventure sport basic skills and of course, a sense of adventure.
