Our Outdoor and Environmental Education Centres operate from September until the end of June, providing dynamic and innovative programs grounded in the Ontario Curriculum for students from grade 1 to 12.
Environmental Education With a wind turbine, passive and active solar systems and unique straw bale buildings, including a solar straw bale greenhouse, we provide students with concrete and inspiring examples of alternatives to fossil fuels. Our newly revised alternative energy program features solar cookers, solar ovens, model solar powered cars and a variety of hands-on and experientially based equipment. Our award winning Camp Kawartha Environment Centre, is one of Canada’s most sustainable buildings.
Commitment to Professionalism Our educators, all university graduates, many teacher-trained, share a lifetime commitment to excellence in education in the outdoors. They combine a wide range of knowledge and experience in natural science, history, geography, environmental studies, outdoor living skills, group development and adventure learning.
