To make the most of the opportunities at the GFC, an overnight experience is highly recommended. There is not only so much to see and do, but we find that there is a greater social connection between classmates and group members following an overnight visit in this truly rich environment. Immerse yourself to harness the potential for growth. The reward is worth the effort. And let’s be honest, who wouldn’t want to stay here for a couple nights!
There are so many reasons to take learning outside, and so many reasons to choose the GFC as your host. One of the biggest reasons to visit us? Your visit is custom-tailored to your group’s needs. Whether you are examining natural communities with your Grade 4 classroom, looking to develop social skills in your 6th graders, wanting to bring your Grade 11 biology curriculum to life, or to challenge your post-secondary students, we have a program for you! We have also designed experiences for youth community groups and corporate clients. Reach out to let us know how we can best serve you!
Overnight visits include exclusive access to the GFC and its amenities during your stay, as well as all meals and programs. There are also Evening Programs that are exclusive to our overnight guests, such as the Night Hike, which offers a guided opportunity to explore the forest and its inhabitants after the sun goes down. And no outdoor education trip is complete without a campfire!
