West Kootenay U19 Film Fest | Best Sports Film
The seventh generation of ATLAS has been awe-spiring. It is nearly impossible to put into words and it is the moments that are too busy being enjoyed to be filmed that are truly the heart of the academy. This year has been one of growth, of delving deeper inside of who we are, and how we accept and work alongside each other. Sharing some horrendous but mostly very tremendous events has brought the class of 2013 together as a family, the people I look up to, and know I can depend on for support.
It has been an experience ATLAS, one I hope every student interested in the outdoors will get to have in the future
Now let's go play.
For those who don't know about the program, ATLAS (Adventure Tourism Leadership and Safety) is a 5 month career prep course for adventure tourism. Home base is in the high school LV. Rogers in the eclectic town of Nelson, BC. Students of the academy acquire their AST 1, Companion Rescue, GSAR, WRFA (40h), and Flatwater Canoeing Certifications. Its experiential learning that takes place outside of a classroom, and who doesn't like to end their school day with some killer powder lines?
