GO ADVENTURE CO. (2512541 Ontario Inc) IS AN OUTDOOR BASED RECREATION COMPANY THAT PROVIDES PROGRAMS TO ANYONE, ANYWHERE AT ANYTIME. BUT MORE SPECIFICALLY WE  LOVE TO PLAY, MOVE AND BE OUTSIDE. WE FOCUS ALL OF OUR PROGRAMS ON THESE PHILOSOPHIES AND ARE BUILDING A COMMUNITY OF GO-ERS WHO LOVE TO PLAY, MOVE AND BE OUTSIDE TOO.

THE NITTY GRITTY ON OUR PROGRAMS

There is no such thing as a “typical day” at GO Adventure Co. because our programming is tailored to meet the dynamics and interest of each group. We believe it is important to have both planned, structured activities as well as ample opportunity for supervised free play where participants can use their imaginations and create. We want each time at GO to be an authentic, outdoor play experience where participants feel they have ownership of their time with us and a safe, encouraging environment to try new things. 

GO HEADQUARTERS

Our headquarters is nestled away on 130 acres of outdoor bliss just outside of Dundalk. We have a large pond, 80 acres of workable farmland, 5 acres of hardwood forest, and 10 acres of softwood forest - all connected with walking trails and tucked away places to play.

DIVERSITY AT GO

Our dream at GO is to be able to offer recreation experiences anywhere, at anytime, to anyone. This includes GO-ers living with a disability. We understand that each individual is unique and has varying needs, so all it takes is a discussion with us to plan for proper supports and services during any of our GO programs, in order to make it a positive and successful experience for everyone involved. Please keep in mind that we are an outdoor based program and so there may be accessibility barriers for GO-ers with limited mobility.


Janna Tait - Co-GOer

Alycia Bannon - Founder/CO-GOer

  Growing up, Alycia never knew what career to focus her attention on but she always knew she wanted to be her own boss. It took many years of travelling around the world, a diploma in Recreation and Leisure services, working various contracts and the support of friends and family to have her realize she wanted to return to her hometown and start a recreation company. With Alycia’s “say yes and GO” attitude she has had many opportunities to learn new skills and gain knowledge in many different areas. She has worked for four different summer camps (all in different locations throughout the world), nannied in the Rockies and most recently instructed rock climbing programs at schools in the GTA. Alycia is excited about the idea of running her own company because it allows her to use the assortment of skills and knowledge she has acquired living and working in so many different settings.  She has a passion for the outdoors, sports, being creative, working with people, taking time for fun, recreation and leisure. Alycia looks forward to sharing her passion and building a community of GO-ers!

  Janna is an outdoor loving northerner from Whitehorse, Yukon, which is where she met Alycia one summer directing and leading Youth Adventure Camps together. The idea of eventually running their own business was sparked that summer, but it took a few years to make it happen. In the meantime Janna went to university and received two degrees: a Bachelor of Kinesiology - Pedagogy major and a Bachelor of Education - Physical Education major. Her resume includes teaching Outdoor education and PE in Alberta, substitute teaching in the Yukon and coaching volleyball, basketball, soccer, badminton, and track and field. When asked about why she wanted to be a partner in GO Adventure Co she said: “I am a teacher and cannot imagine myself in any other profession. However, I am a teacher faced with the challenge of only REALLY loving the subjects that don't get priorities in school. My favourite place to teach is actually outside of school; outside of the school building in the outdoors and outside of scheduled school time when I am coaching or going on school trips. My two favorite parts of teaching are building relationships and experiencing that ‘aha!’ moment with the person learning something new. I am so excited to be apart of GO because it will allow me to teach subjects I love, in my favourite type of setting - outside of school.”
