Hands on Learning’- Evans Lake Outdoor Education

The Evans Lake Forest Education Centre is located in beautiful Squamish, BC, nestled on a pristine private mountain lake.  Our facility is open year-round and is available for field trips & multi-day programs from Sept 1 to June 30.  Groups of over 51 people have exclusive use of the facility, including full catering and accommodation for up to 140 in 10 heated cabins and 6 semi-private rooms.

The Evans Lake Forest Education Centre operates on the Society’s mandate to provide outdoor, environmental, and forest-based educational opportunities for youth and community groups. In order to meet our mandate and provide exceptional programs, we have created an extensive outdoor education manual to assist teachers in planning before, during and after their stay at Evans Lake.

Evans Lake outdoor education takes the classroom outdoors for hands on, in depth interactions with the forest. Students will learn by doing, and will be challenged in unique ways. They will discover and gain independence and an appreciation for nature and their surroundings.
