Whether we are kayaking down rivers or climbing up mountains, Outdoor Pursuits is always adventuring. “Outdoor pursuits might not be the largest group, nor the most celebrated, but it is definitely the most passionate,” says Jack P, Whittall ‘22.

Sep 26, '20

On Wednesday September 23rd, the Grade 8 class went for their first kayaking PE class with lead instructors Mr Norman and Mr Thompson.

For the first few days of school, the Grade 8s went to Camp Pringle for three days of fun and bonding experiences with our new classmates and teachers.

Seas the Day!

Nov 21, '19

At Brentwood, Saturdays are usually spent in academic classes, followed by an hour or two of athletic activity, and then free time. Not so, however, for students in Outdoor Pursuits this past weekend! On Friday, as the rest of the school was busily engaged in its arts, the students in ODP loaded our camping and kayaking gear into a truck, and...

As winter creeps up on Brentwood students with report cards and the end of our first term, there are many changes going on. As the good weather comes to an end, so too do first term sports.

Liquid Sunshine - Outdoor Pursuits

Nov 06, '19

On a wonderful October day, a group of happy (and a bit crazy) students set out to climb Maple Mountain. It was 1:45 pm when we boarded the bus that would take us to the trail entrance at the base of the mountain.

Another Trip ‘round Salt Spring Island

Sep 26, '19

Outdoor Pursuits is a small program at Brentwood, but in my (admittedly biased), opinion, no other sport comes close to paralleling the adventure and diversity of activities that ODP offers. Early last week, less than three weeks into the first term, ODP launched ourselves into preparations for a camping and sea kayaking trip. The five-day,...

Another River Conquered

Apr 19, '19

Persistent drizzle, chilly temperatures, and foaming rapids did not stop a hardy group of Outdoor Pursuits students from attending the Cowichan Youth Kayaking Festival this past weekend. Mr Norman has been organizing this youth-centered whitewater paddling festival for seven consecutive years, with the goal of developing skills and a passion for...

As we continue to embark on our journey as students in Brentwood, we often reflect on how fast time is accelerating with each and every moment spent in campus. Within a couple of weeks, students will be approaching their Term 3 sport endeavours after a magnificent Term 2 of sports. In order to make this term in sports transcending and spectacular,...
