about our events
Get a glimpse of what you can experience
There’s nothing desolate about Desolation Sound. Such an ironic name as it’s a calm and protected place with the stunning coast mountains for a backdrop, full of islands and inlets that are uninhabited except for an abundance of wildlife. With the right tides on the sandy beaches, the water gets so deliciously warm, you’d feel like you’re in Hawaii!
Desolation Sound: world-renowned spectacular Marine park.
Smoking Cessation camps.
Our unique offering is the smoking cessation method called “The Palingenesis method”. A 4 to 6-day camping quit-smoking workshop with a unique program that rewires the brain to accept the reality of a nicotine-free life. Instead, we will plug in creativity and physical improvements. With therapists, adventure, camp life, speakers, and easy-going time in the outdoors, we will dive directly into the best way to quit smoking: “The Palingenesis method”.
