Progressive Academy: Not your average Summer Camp


This content is brought to you by: Progressive Academy

Imagine spending two weeks at a summer camp, gaining skills in a variety of outdoor pursuit activities and achieving up to 11 Alberta high school credits, all while earning certifications toward careers in camp leadership and guiding! Mountain Adventure School provides exactly this opportunity to students all over Alberta. Professional teachers and guides facilitate this hands-on learning experience in a setting that is positive, safe, supportive and fun.

Living and learning in a camp setting, students are introduced to whitewater canoeing, hiking, mountain biking, rock climbing and rappelling, wilderness living skills and more! Intermixed with these adventure activities are classroom theory sessions, and amazing opportunities for both personal and group development. During the final week, the skills achieved are put into practice-with our four day river trip where the students learn to live in the wilderness and challenge themselves in all-new ways.

The three-year professional development and high school credit program at MAS provides students with vital real world certifications in Standard First Aid, Alberta Waterfront Instructor Certification and Canadian Moving Water Skills Tandem. In addition to this, the outdoor survival and emergency response training provide life-long skills.

Just minutes outside of Rocky Mountain House, the Mountain Adventure School camp provides an experience for high school students like no other. For more information and program guides, visit;
