Pine Project

  • Outdoor Education Centre

The Pine Project inspires personal growth and a love of nature through transformative outdoor experiences. We offer year-round nature connection programs for youth of all ages. During the school year, groups meet for one half-day or full-day session each week or month. Guided by expert mentors, kids spend 100% of their time outside, no matter the weather. They explore the parks, develop naturalist knowledge, practice wilderness skills, play games, sing songs, make crafts, and more. Through these experiences, we build deep connections with nature, community and oneself.

Research shows that spending time in nature makes kids happier, healthier and smarter. We see it first hand every day. Join us to discover the magic of nature!
