Outdoor Adventure & Discovery Classroom

"The Child in Nature is an Endangered Species" - Richard Louv

Our Outdoor Classroom is a great way for public and private schools, parents of homeschoolers, camps, and scout leaders to collaborate with our team of professionals. Decades of data driven evidence shows that kids who spend time playing, exploring, and learning in the outdoor environment on average are healthier mentally and physically than their counterparts who are confined within the traditional classroom. 

The outdoor learning environment offers numerous benefits for cognitive, emotional, and social growth of children. Key benefits include enhanced academic performance, heightened engagement and motivation, cultivation of critical thinking and problem-solving skills, bolstered emotional well-being and self-confidence, social skills development, supported physical health benefits, and a fostered environmental awareness and stewardship. Overall, The integration of outdoor education within educational frameworks holds profound and lasting benefits for children’s holistic development. Through meaningful interactions with nature, they not only excel academically but also cultivate a lifelong appreciation for learning and a sense of connection to the natural world. 


Our goal is to provide a conduit in which we can collaborate with educators across curricula to help foster curiosity, encourage individual interests, and facilitate critical thinking skills and an overall love of learning through outdoor adventure and discovery.

We work with pre-school through Grade 12.
Many of our activities can be modified for all ages.
