Tons of Things To Do

List of things to do at the Wilderness Edge. Bring out your family to the Wilderness Edge Retreat Center for a great outdoor adventure. Our glorious woodland location (about an hour east of Winnipeg In Pinawa within the Whiteshell Provincial Park) gives kids of all ages plenty of space to play games, have a picnic, and stick their feet into the cool Winnipeg River just a few yards away from us.
It it’s a milestone event, present a slide show of photos of life using the projector and screen provided by the Wilderness Edge Retreat.

Use a woodlands backdrop with vibrant greens to pose family members and honoured guests to make your pictures memorable.

Explore the local pathways along the Ironwood or Trans-Canada trails with your loved ones or join in on the quiet conversations with the older adults who would appreciate sitting in the courtyard next to a cozy fire or perhaps by the river and nearby islands at the docks.

Watch a beautiful pink and gold Manitoba sunrise from the hot tub deck and later sit around a campfire while you roast marshmallows and tell stories. The night sounds of nature will delight in keeping you company.

Rain won’t stop the fun! You can still enjoy the Boreal Forest and Winnipeg River through the expansive windows of the Dining or Manitoba room as you sit warmly watching the fog roll in off the water. When the buffet meal is over, play games, visit around fire places, watch movies, or just hang around out on the covered wrap-around deck.


Cook Your Own Food or Have It Catered In

Prepare and serve your family reunion picnic meals by booking our Kitchen or Couples Suite with kitchen at Wilderness Edge. Book our Meal & Lodging package and we will cater all your meals in buffet style for a very low bundled price.
