All of our programs are designed to challenge students in a fun, non-competitive environment while providing them with an interactive, hands-on learning experience.
Our programs are offered to both public and private elementary schools and are backed by more than 50 years of experience developing the best summer camp programs! The programs below represent a sample of what we offer and are designed as a guideline. Each program curriculum is customized in conjunction with the team at your school to offer a unique program. Green Acres Outdoor Education, a non-profit organization, hosts thousands of students each year from pre-nursery through Grade 12 at our Markham Outdoor Education Centre.
Located on 140 acres, our ‘close to the city’ location is the perfect venue for your next trip! Maple Syrup, Farm, Pumpkin Picking and Leadership Development are our most popular programs.
Our Leadership Centre is focused on our 10 acre Low & High Rope courses complete with a rock climbing wall and an intense obstacle course just like you might see on Survivor. Each September we welcome nearly five thousand students for our September Orientation programs. The perfect program to welcome new and returning students back to school.
Located in Markham near Elgin Mills Road and Kennedy Road close to highways 404 and 407 we’re just a few minutes from most schools in Toronto, York, and Durham regions.
Programs start at $7.50 per student and are available for half or full days starting in mid-March through late October.
We also offer a number of in school programs including Chick Hatching and Caterpillar/Butterfly Release in addition to Media Literacy programs offered through our Green Acres 365 Lunch and After-School Program Division.
