Skydive SWOOP

Since incorporating in 1979, we estimate we have trained and jumped with more than 13,000 first-time jumpers. SWOOP'ers have contributed to the writing and testing of the Canadian First Jump FreeFall program now used by the Canadian Sport Parachuting Association (CSPA), and helped write and develop the Progressive Free Fall School used across Canada to develop skills in jumpers new to the sport. SWOOP also has instructors who are members of the CSPA's working comittee (CWC).

Skydive SWOOP is the last remaining skydiving Club in Canada run exclusively by volunteer members. As a non-profit Incorporation, we elect a Board of Directors yearly who administer the club. The BOD and many other volunteers run the entire operation on their own free time. None of us makes our living at SWOOP, we're there only because we love the sport of skydiving, and want to share it with as many others as we can. So remember... be kind to us, we are there to have fun too!

Bushcraft Workshops & more!

Bushcraftpricebubble freeDo you want to get outdoors and explore more? Then this course is the one for you. Bushcraft is all about exploring and discovery, very addictive but great for the soul. Bushcraft takes you to another level when it comes to enjoying the outdoors - being able to build, light and maintain a fire with ease, improvise utensils that you may have left behind, read the woods, identify the plants and find something you want the answer to for next time.

At School In The Woods we believe that many of life's problems can be made easier with a little bit of outdoor time and every chance we get you will find us there, whether its teaching courses or enjoying some down time. We are a group of individuals from many different backgrounds that bring a very unique perspective to any course.

Everyone at School In The Woods cares about the students that pass through our school, all of the instructors feel that the school is part of them and strive to make sure you have the greatest and safest time while you are with us.

Wilderness expert Carl Chambers will be holding workshops throughout the festival.
