Learning Through Adventure!

Education & Outdoor Recreation

Great Moose Adventures

Outdoor Education, Wilderness Retreats & Canadian Culture

Summer Program 
A combination of traditional summer camp activities & outdoor education with an independent focus!

With social distancing rules in place, camp life looks different, but still the same.

Traditional camp activities such as hiking, swimming , canoeing , games, crafts, music, drama, sports, archery and camp fires will still continue - just with an independent focus.

Outdoor Education will also change, with team building activities switching to personal projects and challenges, but with all the same benefits:
  • emphasizes camper engagement 
  • fosters a growth mindset 
  • practices critical thinking & problem solving techniques
  • gain mental and physical skill

Examples of Independent activities and projects include:

  • catapults
  • aqueduct building
  • animal & plant study
  • scales and balances
  • shelter building
  • water filtration

  • magic potion
  • making jam
  • kites, boomerangs & paper air planes
  • volcano lands
  • boats & rafts
  • treasure maps
