Who we are and what we do!
Our Mission: Green Acres Outdoor Education Centre strives to nurture a passion for Outdoor Education and learning through immersive extracurricular school program experiences that transform lives and build community within and beyond our borders.
Whether it’s through our Leadership Programs, Spring Farm & Tours, Maple Syrup Tours or Butterfly Kits, our curriculum based programs have something to fit each groups educational goals. Explore the outdoors while learning how to build and sustain a stronger future for generations to come.
Spring Farm, Nature & Team Building Tours
Engage your group in the great outdoors for a day of safe, exciting hands on experiences that explore farm, nature and team building. Choose from a half or full day and mix and match activities to build the outdoor adventure that best suits your groups needs.
Our Leadership Programs are designed and executed with attention to detail in order to promote strategic team building, working together and co-operative learning. Through various Low Ropes, critical thinking games, as well as personalized programs that meet the specific needs of your participants, our goal is to promote the opportunity for success and positivity at every turn.

This program is perfect for school groups, homeschools or community groups and is an interactive way to learn in the great outdoors!
