Save time and let us plan an effective and memorable event for your group.
If you've grown tired of the same class field trip year after year, this year let your students experience the joy of the great outdoors. Your students will enjoy their morning working together in teams on SURVIVOR! challenges seen on the popular tv series. Then after a delicious lunch, it’s time for a kid-friendly float on the “Cheakamus Splash” scenic float trip adventure. If you don't have approval for rafting with your students no problem, we can also offer biking, hiking, rock climbing or even a GPS or wilderness survival event as your 2nd activity. We are happy to customize a program perfect for your school, just call us to discuss.
Just a short school bus ride from the Lower Mainland, our Squamish Adventure Base comes well-equipped to make your school event a success for all group sizes. Plenty of large covered areas, games & activities, change rooms & washrooms make this venue perfect for your class or combination of multiple classes.
Added Bonus! With every confirmed booking receive a free "Raft for 1" gift certificate for use as a prize during any school or PAC fundraising efforts. A $160 value!

Since 1992, Canadian Outback Adventures & Events has been a leader in risk management in the adventure tourism sector. Through our involvement with the BC River Outfitters Association, stringent risk management policies are maintained and evaluated across all divisions of our company. We are active members of Tourism Vancouver, Tourism Victoria, Tourism Whistler and Tourism Squamish. All require us to maintain industry standards for safety. Also, our talented staff pride themselves on providing memorable and safe experiences for all our guests.
Our Survivor! event, known to our corporate clients as "Corporate Castaways", consists of a series of adventurous tasks. These are all extremely low or no risk, and are each led by one of our trained event hosts. The greatest risk found during this event would be walking along a balance beam 8"-12" above the ground. Injuries during this event are unheard of.
The Cheakamus Splash scenic float trip we have chosen is an ideal soft-adventure for kids as young as 5 years of age. Every year thousands of kids and their families from around the world raft down the Cheakamus River. We typically have 8-10 guests per raft, fully outfitted in required safety gear (pfd and helmet). Each raft is guided by a certified rafting guide. There has never been a major incident during a commercial rafting trip on the Cheakamus River. Got questions about the Cheakamus Splash experience?
