Island Mountain Centre offers mother/daughter retreat

Moms and daughters can sign up for a two-day getaway at the Vancouver Island Mountain Centre.

Building on the success of seniors and grandparent-grandchild retreats last spring, moms and daughters can sign up for a two-day getaway that combines a healthy mix of exploring and adventure, with some time for socializing and relaxing.

It all happens at the Vancouver Island Mountain Centre (VIMC) at Mount Washington during a one-night, two-day retreat (May 18 and 19) that includes fun social games, meals, morning yoga sessions for all levels of ability and low-impact snowshoe hikes across sub-alpine terrain.

“It’s a great time to be up in the alpine,” states Mountain Centre manager Andrew Scherck. “Right now you get a bit of everything.

“There is still enough snow on the ground to go for one last snowshoe adventure, but you also get the warmer afternoons to share with the whiskeyjacks, chickadees, squirrels and few wild flowers that are starting to pop up.”

Spaces are still available four the mother-daughter retreat. Rregistration is through the Campbell River Recreation Community Centre at 250-286-1161 or the Sportsplex at 250-923-7911.

The Vancouver Island Mountain Centre at Mount Washington is located at the end of Nordic Road across from Raven Lodge and Strathcona Park’s Paradise Meadows.
