First Descents is coming to Canada

Are you into adventure? Would you like to be able to live this adventure with cancer survivors? Our Survive & Thrive Expedition is full for this year but there’s no need to fret.

First Descents describes themselves as being “committed to curing young adults of the emotional effects of cancer and empowering them to regain control of their lives by experiencing outdoor adventure therapy through kayaking, rock climbing and other outdoor adventure sports” and they will be holding their inaugural kayaking trip in Canada from August 14-20, 2011.

This opportunity is being presented in conjunction with the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation.

Their program is available for Canadian cancer fighters or survivors between 18 and 39. Like YACC’s programs, this camp is offered free of charge for those who are accepted save your travel costs, for which assistance may be available.
