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 about our forest environment, our facility is flexible enough to accommodate a variety of themes; including outdoor recreation and nature studies, teamwork, leadership, science or music retreats and more.

Our Program Director is available to help you plan and coordinate your programs on-site and our qualified instructors are available to complement school staff for activity leadership and Forest Education programs. Many program have been developed especially for school groups and we would love to help you figure out which best meets your needs.
