Northern Exposure (NorEx) is an opportunity for you to engage in activities in a safe, accessible and fun environment that support the learning outcomes of the physical education curriculum. Our skilled staff will provide opportunities for you to push yourself and develop your confidence through sports and recreation, including voyageur and tandem canoeing, archery, tandem-cycling, and sailing. Health and wellness activities will further support your independence and promote healthy living. You may be supported by your itinerant teacher and/or Vision Loss Rehabilitation staff.
