Welcome Fiona - CTS New Program Coordinator!

Hey CTSer's 

Here is an opportunity to apply for an Environmental leadership Award - application now being accepted for the Dr. M. Wosk Environmental Leadership Award. 

The Dr. M. Wosk Environmental Leadership Award was established by the Pacific Parklands Foundation for the development of youth leadership in 2006. The leadership fund is used to engage, train and empower today’s youth with the skills necessary for the future sustainability of our spectacular city and regional parks.

Thanks to MEC for all the support this summer and over the years. This past weekend was our last for this summer and the gear MEC provided CTS has been super awesome and very timely.  After 15+ years - our first donation and purchase of MEC Tarn 3 tents in 2001/2002 are finally wearing out. Not bad for tents that have supported over 3000 youth connect with nature in our Regional Parks, through rain, snow and many starry nights of camp fun. 

Check out our new camp gear thanks to the generous donation by MEC! Support that has hellped over 300 youth attend camp, connect with nature and meet new friends. 


CTS Just had a few spaces open at our Pacific Spirit camp for this weekend!  Last chance to go to camp, meet new friends and have some fun!

Register now!

Ready for a challenge! CTS Only has 5 spots left for this season - this weekend only August 4-6.  There is still time to register for camp this weekend to experience our free camp program for youth 12 to 18. 



A CTS Cinnamon Role Hug!  You could be the icing on the role - join us. Register today - camp spaces going quickly!

 Liz - Liz started as a Participant with Catching The Spirit back in the day. She fell in love with the program and decided to become a Peer Leader two summers later.
