The Coyote Tracks program was developed in response to the ongoing need for more safe and supportive group counselling experiences for male-identifying youth in early adolescence. In this small group environment of 6 youth, boys have the chance to reduce social isolation and mental health struggles such as ADHD, anxiety and depression and build their confidence, learn new coping skills, and connect with their love for nature. The skilled mental health practitioners focus on facilitating inclusive experiences, while teaching coping skills and fostering growth in each participant.

Each program day will take place in the upper region of Thetis Lake Regional Park so be prepared to be outdoors for 4 hours exploring in the elements and developing a deeper connection with this natural area.   

The program is suitable for male-identified youth ages 12-15 who experience:

  • Social Isolation
  • Difficulty with social skills
  • Learning disabilities
  • Generalized anxiety
  • Depression

Fee Subsidies for this Coyote Tracks offering is supported by the generous donors who contributed to the 2022 Andre Courtemanche Walk for Hope


Notea pre-program check-in will be offered early in January for the youth and family to connect with a program facilitator and discuss goals for the program.
