Rock Climbing

Children rock climbing - by Sam AllardThere are many places in Ontario that you can climb on natural rock walls, but at Haliburton Forest we have a one of a kind rock face that is appropriate for all students. In just one place we will teach students how to climb, belay, work together, create a positive space, and to challenge themselves on different routes.

This natural rock wall is located at our Stocking Lake facility which also provides students with an off-the-grid experience.

Students can learn about solar panels, living lightly on the land, sustainable resource management, participating within sustainable activities, and more. Students learn so much about themselves, therefore making this experience one that is hard to pass up. Come participate in one of the most rewarding and memorable experiences Haliburton Forest has to offer.
