Power to Be:
Power To Be Adventure Therapy Society provides inclusive outdoor recreation programs to enhance the health and quality of life for youth and families living with special needs in British Columbia.
Since its inception in 1998, Power To Be Adventure Therapy Society (Power To Be), a registered charity, has been enhancing the health and quality of life for youth and families living with special needs in British Columbia.
Guided by a focus on health, education, and community, we at Power To Be believe that outdoor activity is a source of inspiration, regardless of a person’s circumstances. From innovative adaptive recreation programs for youth and families living with a disability, to multi-day wilderness expeditions designed for youth at risk and those living with a life threatening illness, our collaborative community approach equips participants with the self-confidence they need to discover and develop competencies in personal health, environmental education, leadership, and community responsibility.
