Adventure Leadership Training
Peacekeeper Park offers youth groups the opportunity to participate in challenging, yet safe outdoor adventure training in order that they can grow both physically and intellectually to better contribute to their country, community and family. Highly Qualified instructors ensure that each activity is carried out to the high safety standards enforced at the park. Equipment is checked on a routine basis and before each use. Groups may also provide their own instructors as long as they meet or exceed our safety standards.
Experiential Outdoor Education
Peacekeeper Park now offers focused outdoor and environmental education experiences for students of all school boards, private schools and home schooled students.It is our goal to compliment classroom learning by providing opportunities to explore the outdoors. Outdoor experiential learning is used in school settings as a platform for enhanced learning back at the school. In addition to curriculum support, we also focus strongly on the importance of healthy active living, character education, group/community building, leadership and the value of making connections with our natural surroundings. We also connect in the importance of service leadership in building the camp/park while honouring Canadian Peacekeepers.
Each program unit and outdoor study experience is based upon specific curriculum expectations. PKP is truly unique among other outdoor education facilities in that programs of each group are developed with the specific of the students in mind. Working with the individual teacher, all programs are developed to ensure that the experiences offered support and enhance the curriculum being taught in the classroom.
