Hats off to YK1 and their commitment to ensuring that our young people are safe and active in the outdoors. This week every grade 8 student in the district will have an opportunity to learn valuable safety and rescue skills in the comfort and safety of the Ruth Inch Memorial Pool. Training time will be followed by a tour up the Yellowknife River in our beautiful voyageur canoes.

The ice caves are, once again, absolutely beautiful this year! We have had the opportunity to take a few group of guests over to the ice caves, and we are amazed by how quickly they have formed. We are so lucky to have such a prime location to visit the ice caves. We just step outside our front door and start walking on Back Bay of Great Slave Lake. It’s about a 15-20 minute walk from NARWAL. Here are some photos from a tour a couple weeks ago.
The other day Tiffany was telling me that it is important to Google your name to see what results come up. So, this morning I decided to see what Google had to show when I searched “Rachel Cluderay”. One of the first results was this great article (that I didn’t know existed) about a kayak course Cathy and me taught in Cambridge Bay in 2014. Check it out!

Cathy spent last week teaching a Standard First Aid and Wilderness First Aid course in Behchoko. It was a really fun to group to work with. They had so much knowledge about the land. Here are a couple photos from emergency shelter building.
Cecelia, Paul and Kenneth built this shelter in under six minutes!
Another great shelter by Richard, Cecelia and Edith.
