Experiential & Outdoor Education Trips

Week Without Walls (WWOW)

At Meadowridge, our MYP students start the year off a little differently than at most schools. It’s a little difference that makes a big difference, and it’s something that our students and teachers look forward to every year: Meadowridge’s Week Without Walls (WWOW).

The WWOW Trips Continue to be One of the Most Memorable
Events of the Year, and for Good Reason

They Build Community
Teachers and students – both new and returning – have a great opportunity to get to know each other outside the academic confines of school.

They Encourage Adventure & Risk-Taking
Students take part in a variety of novel and challenging activities that provide an opportunity for success and growth.

They Satisfy the Duke of Edinburgh’s Outdoor Component
In grades 9 and 10, students complete the outdoor component of their Duke of Edinburgh Award Program (Bronze and Silver).

They Get Students Living In & Learning In the Outdoors
Students learn through living; they learn to cook for themselves, to canoe, to pitch a tent… they learn skills which cannot be taught in a class
