NiteHike 2016's theme will be 'NiteHike Avoids Getting Lost in the Woods', with station activites inspired to create survival challenges, spooky games, and create an all around good time for the approximately thousand participants who take part each year. NiteHike will take place at UBC's Pacific Spirit Park overnight from April 9th-10th, 2016. This year marks NiteHike's 45th year running, and we're darn proud of it!
If you haven't been before, it's a great teambuilding activity for youth ages 8 and up (Scouts, Girl Guides, and BSA members welcome). Hike groups of four-seven youth travel the trails of the park in the dark, stopping at 20-25 activity stations where they complete a challenge and score points. The group that has the highest score is decalred the winner, and has their group name added to the trophy for all eternity. There's hot dogs, hot chocolate, and lots of fun to be had! Youth participant registration is only $10, with two leaders per group free (additional leaders $5 each).
Registration will be open from 630pm - 9pm. You are not required to be at headquarters before 630pm, and in fact will not be allowed to start at an activity station until at least 7pm regardless of when your group arrives on site. There is no pre-registration required. Payment can be made on the day of the event by cash, group cheque, or credit card. For those of you who HAVE been before, we have some more changes to the registration process planned for this year to help eliminate some of the lines that we get at the very beginning of the evening.
Station registration will open January 1st, with site locations being assigned during Spring Break, preference given to returning stations.
