Join us for engaging professional development opportunities throughout the school year for teachers, parents and curious educators.  The YMCA-YWCA of Vancouver Island Outdoor Centre and Camp Thunderbird is committed to providing quality outdoor experiences that support healthy growth and development.


Join us for an inspiring and immersive day‐long workshop retreat designed to help you reflect on your own connections to nature and explore ways of bringing creativity, nature‐based and mindfulness practices into your work and life.

This workshop is experiential and will include structured reflection and discussion. You will come away more inspired, curious and equipped with a renewed sense of wonder, some new ideas and evidence‐based practices to implement in your life and work.

This program is ideal for educators, youth workers, counsellors and others interested in bringing nature and mindfulness into their practice and is inclusive of all experiences and abilities. We will be spending the day outside, so please come prepared and dressed for the weather. Our dining hall is closed this year so please bring snacks and a packed lunch. Hot drinks will be provided.
