Camping

Learning camping skills - by Sam AllardAt Haliburton Forest we take pride in being a sustainable forest. While participating in one of our camping trips, students will learn how to "leave no trace" creating the a minimal impact on the environment. Students will develop an understanding of how to become more aware of their impacts and consequences that result on the environments that surround them. Your students will also learn more about themselves and working within group situations. Come discover and experience our sustainable forest by hiking, canoeing, or biking and learn to camp or build upon your camping skills. Camping equipment and food can be provided for you to ease the idea of camping. This program can be partnered with many of the other experiential lessons that are offered. These programs will be tailored to fit your individual interests and goals.
