Sea to Sky Outdoor School provides educational programs of the highest quality tailored to the individual needs of elementary and high school groups and the collective need of society to shift to a sustainable path.
Sea to Sky operates from two locations — YMCA Camp Elphinstone on the Sunshine Coast, and Camp Fircom on Gambier Island. Both sites are located in Howe Sound, Canada's southern-most fjord, just north-west of Vancouver, BC.
