Who is Hope Mountain Centre?


Hope Mountain Centre for Outdoor Learning (HMCOL) is a registered Canadian charity BN 818663940 RR0001 and BC society S004971 providing services, programs, and events on the traditional and unceded territories of the Stó:lō, Nlaka’pamux and Syilx/Okanagan Nations in the northern Cascade mountain range of southwestern British Columbia. Working with people of all ages and abilities, the focus of HMCOL is on increasing knowledge about and access to the outdoors. A strong connection to nature empowers people to make better choices that lead society toward environmental sustainability, improved physical and mental health, and enhanced sense of community.

Hope Mountain Centre is a proud member of the Safe Space Alliance. 


Originally registered as a society on September 19, 2005 as a Fraser-Cascade School District program called “Hope Mountain School,” on February 25, 2008 the organization split into two distinct groups: Hope Mountain Centre for Outdoor Learning and Fraser-Cascade Mountain School (FCMS). FCMS continues as an outdoor experience program run by School District 78. Hope Mountain Centre for Outdoor Learning became a registered charity on June 23, 2009 to reflect its wider audience and range of programs. HMCOL still provides education programs in schools, and also leads outdoor programs for the general public, carries out numerous local conservation projects, as well as building, restoring and maintaining heritage and community hiking trails in the region.
