School Programs at Evans Lake

The Evans Lake Forest Education Centre is open year-round for field trips. Each booking for more than 41 people offers exclusive use of the facility, including full catering and accommodation for 118 people in 10 heated cabins and another 21 people in 6 semi-private rooms..

The Evans Lake Forest Education Centre is an inspiring place to learn about the wonders of our coastal forests. Students of all ages, from pre-school to university, come to Evans Lake to live and learn in nature’s classroom. While our focus is providing outdoor education in and about our forest environment, our facility is flexible enough to accommodate a variety of themes, from outdoor recreation to nature studies to teamwork and leadership opportunities to science or music retreats.

Our Executive Director coordinates all rental bookings, and assists with planning your program before you arrive at Evans Lake. Many of our activities have been developed especially for school groups, and we would love to help you figure out what will best meet your needs. Upon request, we can offer many ideas for fun, educational activities your class can use before your trip, while at the Evans Lake Forest Education Centre, and when back in the classroom after your trip. Onsite, our Program Manager is available to help you plan and coordinate your programs, and our qualified instructors are available to complement your school staff team.
