About the club

The Notre Dame Outdoor Club is an extracurricular club for students of Notre Dame Regional Secondary in Vanouver, BC.

We work very hard to offer a variety of outdoor activities that are safe and affordable. How do we do it? Simple. We have a great staff of teachers who are willing to put in a lot of time and effort to get training and certification from industry leaders. By using our own teachers as guides, we can keep our trips affordable, but still maintain a high standard of safety. Take a look at our key personnel below.
