Catching the Spirit Youth Society

Youth Leadership through Outdoor Experience

Duke of Edinburgh Programs

CTS provides the opportunity for youth to achieve their Duke of Ed awards! As an exploration journey, CTS programs fulfill the requirements for a practice and qualifying Bronze journey and a practice journey for Silver and Gold levels of Duke of Ed. With a 3-day, 2-night program, youth will sleep in tents (or cabins at the Capilano location), learn how to cook, develop fire-buliding skills and learn basic wilderness safety. Using our local parks as a catalyst for learning, youth will explore the trails and participate in a stewardship project. 

Peer Leaders and program participants are eligible to have their Bronze level adventurous journey assessed by a CTS supervisor. The fee for having a Duke of Ed book assessed is $30. Payment can be delivered by cash or cheque before having the journey assessed and signed.
