On another note, we have recently moved to Courtenay, Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. We just want to thank the Spiritus community in the Lower Mainland. Your support of us over the last 10 yrs has not gone unnoticed and is much appreciated. It is so nice to hear your stories of how the skills and knowledge from one of our wilderness programs has decreased the morbidity and saved the life of someone special. For some of you, your first Wilderness program ignited a passion that has directed your lives since. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts wish you all the best!
Send us a note and we will get back to you shortly.
