Outdoor Education

The perfect location and programs perfect for your group.

Outdoor & Leadership centres of the YMCA of Simcoe/Muskoka

The outdoor & leadership centres of the YMCA of Simcoe/Muskoka play host to a variety of groups including school, youth, and post-secondary groups. We also host retreats, adult groups, clubs, teams, conferences, and site rentals.

Your group will develop team building, leadership, communication, positive reinforcement and goal oriented skills in a natural setting outside of the classroom. Participants will develop these skills while participating in activities that integrate the Ontario curriculum in a fun, active and educational manner.

Every program can be altered according to the individual needs of the participants. We will work with you to design what you want your trip to look like; we will help you select your programs and create your schedule.
