CLASS TRIPS & OUTDOOR EDUCATION

 

Partnering with schools to develop programs designed to grow and challenge students and to help achieve your school’s learning objectives.

 

Years of Experience

 

We have had years of experience working with teachers and schools to provide fun-filled and educational day and overnight trips for students in elementary and high school.

The Outdoor Education Program at Pioneer Camp is designed to help students develop leadership and interpersonal skills while promoting a greater appreciation of the environment they live in and the benefits of being physically active. We understand that each person learns differently and use differentiated instruction to try and most effectively engage every student.

Testimonials

 
“Going to Pioneer Camp was a bonding and unforgettable experience for our students. They experienced the beauty of Northern Ontario while learning about the outdoors, about each other, and about themselves. The staff were supportive, motivational, and helped us all to feel like we were in good hands. We look forward to making trips to this camp an annual event, and one that I’m sure will be eagerly anticipated by all our students.”
