Trip Introduction

Student Testimonials

"A ship in harbor is safe, but that is not what ships are built for.” – John A. Shedd

“We are all in the process of becoming.” – Audre Lorde

You were made for more. This August, you are invited on a journey to explore who you will become. Organized in partnership between TWU Recreation and the TWU Outdoor Centre, HKIN 216 (Journey: A TWU Outdoor Experience) which fulfills your University core requirement for experiential and embodied learning, returns for summer 2024.

From August 13–23, 2024, we will spend 10 days in Wells Gray Provincial Park on Clearwater and Azure Lakes, where you will live in community, be self-sustaining, and challenge yourself physically, emotionally, and spiritually. 

Preparation for the trip will include group meetings and a day of orientation on campus prior to leaving for the trip. You will engage with a series of reading and written assignments based on the eight course principles: well-being, preparation and resilience, compassion, pacing, perspective, self-reflection, experience, and (inter) connection. You will consider who you are, what you believe, and what you are called to become. 

The rich, distraction-free environment in this course provides a unique opportunity for you to process more than you would normally have the capacity to. This allows you to create new ways of being and to imagine your future in a new way.
