Enlivening School Curriculum

Public education aspires to ensure all citizens reach their fullest potential to serve society. We believe it is impossible to achieve individual or societal potential without regard for the environment that sustains us.

The GRCA’s Outdoor Education Program enlivens the school curriculum by providing an environmental focus and by engaging students in hands-on experiential activities that will develop their attitudes, knowledge, and skills. We are a longstanding and reliable partner of countless leaders in our schools and communities. In fact, we have been offering exceptional quality, curriculum-linked outdoor education programs at the Ganaraska Forest Centre since 1978. Hundreds of thousands of youth have connected with nature through the GFC!
