Every kid can get outside: move-learn-navigate.
SOGO@School is a program offered to schools and community groups in Calgary and the surrounding area. Our groups program has grown out of demand from teachers and community club leaders, who have been a part of our SOGO evening programs and want to introduce SOGO to new audiences.
SOGO@School can enhance a curriculum by providing students and athletes a fun, highly motivating adventure running program: teaching students skills of navigation, endurance, agility, and speed.
Your school or organization will coordinate with our SOGO staff to find the basic learning objectives of your group. We can then create the experience to fit the number of students, schedule and the outdoor space available. The SOGO program is an outdoor experience, we can design a program in the school yard, green space near the school or local parks depending on the school preference. Our SOGO staff incorporates orienteering equipment and maps as well as a specialized timing system into the program. Our students, staff and volunteers love the use of this specialized equipment.
Program pricing is $530 per half day (up to 5 hours) or for small groups of 1-30 members, and $700 per full day (6+ hours) for groups of 30 or more. We require a 15% non-refundable deposit to confirm your booking and full payment on the final day of your program. Our programs can be run as a single-day option or multi-day residency program in the spring and fall seasons.
