School Programs

Wilderness Edge is a conference facility located in the heart of Whiteshell Park just on the Winnipeg River (in Pinawa, Manitoba, Canada). In this peaceful natural setting, we offer customized and flexible school programs for students ranging from middle school to high school.

Our popular school programs consist of unique and engaging outdoor educational experiences. With an emphasis on hands-on learning, experiences can be linked to your school’s curriculum. Many schools have already discovered the Edge.  Students, staff, and adult volunteers experience firsthand the amazing natural surrounding of the area.
