Outdoor School (Ages 13 to 15)

Teen Wilderness Adventure

We know that Teens need the freedom to test their limits and explore their sense of self. In our Teens Wilderness Adventure Program, we mix active instruction with experiential learning to inspire teens to challenge themselves with new wilderness skills. By unplugging and learning to live with the land, teens build resilience, confidence and leadership.

*Typically, Teens Wilderness Adventure is an overnight expedition-based program hosted at different sites around southern Ontario. However, given ongoing site closures and transport risks, the 2021/22 program will be a day program in and around Toronto. We’re excited to dive deep into nature mysteries hidden in our own backyard and connect with our home environment. 

In light of Covid-19, we’re taking additional measures to ensure the health and safety of participants and staff. Please review the important information in the Outdoor School Caregiver Handbook before registering.

2021/22 Season Details:

This is a weekend-based program with four weekend sessions occurring on the following dates. Locations and times may vary slightly to accommodate group needs and interests. Participants are required to bring their own food. Pricing includes all four weekends and project supplies (transportation is not provided).

Teens weekends will take place either in or around Toronto. We will do our best to balance between Toronto City Parks (King’s Mill Park or Taylor Creek Park) and excursions (eg. Claireville Conservation Area, Rouge Valley, Walker Woods).
