Tree Climbing

Learning how to tree climb - by Cameron FergusonTree Climbing is an incredible experience for all students, no matter their experience level. Students have the opportunity to join an experienced facilitator and learn how to climb trees with safety equipment and instruction. Students will challenge themselves in ways you have never seen before in a safe and controlled environment. When students reach the top of a massive white pine tree they will be awe-struck by the breath-taking view of a Haliburton Forest lake.

This activity is a great half day program that can be coupled with adventure leadership, navigation, hiking, even mountain biking. Bring your students to Haliburton Forest to share lasting memories and wonderful learning opportunities with them.
