School Events, Retreats and Conferences in Whiteshell Provincial Park

Outdoor education

Outdoor Ed has shifted from science skills to climbing, outdoor programs to outdoor activities. It is to the point that it is hard to tell where outdoor ed ends and outdoor summer camp begins. What is needed is an educational adventure, a way to get science into adventure courses. When we take kids out to outdoor camp are they getting the best we have to offer? Let’s make adventures in the wilderness count not only in the photos but the areas of academic pursuits.
