Detour is an energizing, four-day urban experience where youth, ages 13-14, experiment with design, flex their creative problem solving ‘muscles’ and collaborate on an urban sustainable design project. The program is designed to foster independence & agency as well as interdependence & collaboration through a sequence of practical hands-on experiences.

Each day will feature a different theme and set of locations. Participants can expect to be outdoors for at least half of the day and engaged in active transportation between locations. Drop off and pick-up locations (e.g. Radiance Cohousing, River Landing or University of Saskatchewan) will be communicated in the Parent and Participant Handbook.

Times: We will meet each morning at 8:45 a.m., enjoy bagged lunch time together at noon and wrap up at 4:00p.m. each day. 

Cost: The program cost of $180.00* ($45.00/day) includes learning materials, mentorship from qualified outdoor and environmental educators and an insider look at examples of sustainable design in Saskatoon. Participants must provide their own lunch, snacks, bike, helmet and lock.

Requirements: Participants must provide their own lunch, water bottle, snacks, bike, helmet, lock, rain gear, good supportive shoes, and backpack. Bringing sunscreen, bug spray and hat is encouraged. This is an active program and participants should be. able to ride a bike and walk for 60 min
