Tired of traditional PE activities like fitness testing and shuttle runs? Looking for a little adventure? Have you ever wondered what it would be like to explore the great outdoors? Imagine standing at the top of a mountain peak looking down at the Fraser Valley. Taste the kool-aid coloured water from a glacier lake. Feel your legs tire as they hold you tight to a cliff-face wondering if you can stretch your hand to the next hold. Picture the whitewater flying in front of you as you hurtle through a raging river in a kayak, struggling to stay clear of the undertow ahead. Adjust your snowboard to the sound of a snowy wind before taking on the next black diamond. This is Community Recreation!
