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 restrictions on overnight programs, ongoing site closures and transport risks, the 2020/21 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 this important information to learn more.
