Group Initiatives and Team Building

Inuit blanketGroup work, communication, problem solving, team development, cohesion, and more can be introduced, discussed, and created for your students through our many initiatives and team building activities. Our professional staff will develop individualized plans for your entire group to come participate in these activities at Haliburton Forest. However, the learning does not end there. Students will be challenged to think about living lightly on the land and adapting our sustainable management ideas into their lives.

Haliburton Forest prides developing and maintaining a sustainable forest and wishes to teach your students about its application wherever possible. Students will learn how to apply their conversations to their outside lives to become more well-rounded classmates, students, and citizens. Come join us in our fun, enjoyable, and challenging activities.
