School Trips & Outdoor Education in Temagami
Smoothwater offers adventures in outdoor education based on the current and historic Temagami experience in northeastern Ontario.
Our workshops, presentations and activities are experiential and curriculum linked. Each season offers exciting opportunities to learn. School outdoors makes learning more meaningful.
We challenge youth groups to examine ways in which their
behaviours shape the world in which we live. This is a school
trip that makes real, lasting differences in the lives and
careers of today's youth.
Our Leadership Staff
Our leadership staff combines experience
with outdoor certifications. We have fun teaching youth about
the environment while snowshoeing and skiing, canoeing or
hiking. We also partner with local resource people such as
foresters, historians, mining and wildlife technicians, and
First Nations groups for a balanced approach to geographic
realities in Ontario. Even the meals at Smoothwater are all
about experiential learning.
About the Food
Students love our food. We challenge them with healthy choices
and culinary adventures. We walk the talk, supporting the
local foodshed based on the 100 mile diet model. It's rewarding to cook
with students, creating meals and baking bread.
Separate bunkhouses for male and female students provide
warm and comfortable dorm-style lodgings. Ensuite are large,
segregated washrooms. Students and youth groups are required
to bring their own sleeping bags and towels. Teachers and
supervisors usually sleep in private rooms adjacent to the
students for easy supervision.
