JUNIOR ADVENTURERS

The Junior Adventurers will spend the day learning and playing outside at the 20 acres of camp property at Camp Couchiching with access to an indoor space at the Community Hub designed as a nature-inspired classroom. The program is designed for students to learn together by exploring their surroundings, while engaging in play-based and experiential learning.

ADVENTURE CREW
A new once a month program!

The Adventure Crew will spend one Friday a month taking their learning outside for the day. This once-a-month program is designed to deepen children's learning experiences through positive, engaging and exciting experiences and is a complement to traditional learning. Students will spend the day bringing their classroom learning to life with experiential and outdoor experiences on the 20-acre Camp Couchiching Property and in the nature-inspired classroom at the Community Hub. This older range of students will be challenged to learn from the natural spaces while developing critical thinking and problem solving skills, boosting their mental and physical wellness, honing social skills and improving their ability to work cooperatively. Age-appropriate learning connections will be made to the Ontario curriculum by our staff as they emerge from their daily adventures and experiences.

MINI ADVENTURERS

We have a TON of fun at this program! Mini-Adventurers is a half day program with a variety of self-guided and guided program options. Mid-way through the program the Educators host an interactive story time and campfire (a great time to have a big snack!). We ask for one adult to accompany your curious Mini Adventurer(s) as they explore sections of the camp with program options tailored to their age and stage of learning. We believe that positive interactions with nature in their early years of life can open a lifelong relationship with the natural world.
