About Us

Catching the Spirit (CTS) is a non-profit organization that aims to connect every youth in Metro Vancouver with their natural environment, their community, and with each other through life-changing outdoor experiences. Our motto is “for youth, by youth”.     

Connecting you with each other, with nature, and with your community. Maybe you meet a new best friend while camping on our beautiful regional parks. How about learning about an organization doing amazing work that you can get involved in. CTS is an open and welcoming community that values collaboration and cooperation.

We are firm believers of learning through action. Whether it’s our stewardship activities or our nature walks, we are always creating opportunities for knowledge sharing. Participants, Peer Leaders, Supervisors, and program partners alike all have something to share and to learn and we want to help facilitate that.

We are, first and foremost, an organization focused on doing good for the environment. Our belief is that the best way to conserve the beautiful natural world that we live in is to connect people to nature. All of our programs focus on how best to be environmental stewards in our ever increasing urban landscape.
