  • St. John's Cathedral Boys' School in Selkirk, Manitoba, is the most demanding outdoor school in North America, yet it cannot accommodate all the students who would like to enroll. Boys of thirteen to fifteen begin with an initiation tougher than they have ever faced: paddling canoes through three hundred miles of wilderness in two weeks, portaging and camping all the way, and learning not only outdoor lore but cooperation and self-confidence.
