Grizzly Bear Youth Club (Grade 8-12)

Grizzly Bear Youth Club, open to all grade 8-12 youth, is a youth-run outdoor club that runs from October to June. We plan events such as indoor/outdoor rock climbing, hiking, snowshoeing, community dinners, educational sessions, volunteering trips, etc. Great way to meet new friends and learn university/career skills. Full program subsidies are available to make Grizzly Bear open to ALL.

I arrived 4 years ago in Canada with a passion for adventure. After I cycled across Canada, I lived few years in Calgary. There I explored the beautiful Rockies and developed my skills about climbing, hiking and skiing. I worked more than 10 years in summer and winter camp. Being in charge of the children safety and amusement was a great experiences. When Joe told me about his project to help kids discover the power of mountains activities I get hooked. I loved the ideas that through outdoors sports and friendship the young generation can empower themselves. As the director of Grizzly Bear, I will make sure than children will have fun, be safe, make friends and learn what they want to do of their life.

Hello, grizzly bears:

My name is Arrietty Song. It is an honor and privilege for me to be the president of Grizzly Bear Youth Club. Starting in fall 2016, adult sponsors from Climb and Conquer organization and I have been working together to figure out the glorious future of our club, where everyone can find the sense of belonging, appreciate the companionship of each other. Grizzly Bear Youth Club encourages and motivates participants to learn from one another through doing sports and various activities. “Grizzly Bear” defines those youths who have ambitions and want to make a change in their lives. If you are sick of sitting at home all the time, this is a perfect chance for you to immerse yourself in nature and discover new values of life.

I look forward to welcoming you to our kick-off movie night on Oct.21,2016, and hope we will have a fantastic journey together.
