Cameron rappelling at Hollow Valley - by  Sam AllardTeachers, have your students participate in a once in a life-time, breath-taking experience. Students will hike up onto an extremely scenic area called the Hollow Valley, where our professional guide will instruct students how to use their safety equipment to rappel off the edge. Think about this: student could climb up a rock face one day and rappel down a rock face another.

Two completely different experiences, in two completely different places.

Students will thank you for choosing this activity to be a part of your program at Haliburton Forest. Partner this program with geography, history, or forestry, for a more educational outlook about the natural environment. Anything is possible. You choose it, we create it!
