Imagine a classroom without walls, where the forest is your child’s playground. Trees, animals, and birds are not just characters of books, but our friends and teachers too.

Scugog Nature School provides outdoor, inquiry-based learning to children ages 1 to 13. Through spontaneous outdoor play, children expand their understanding of the Earth while applying concepts from science, art, math, language, and physical education. Children build confidence and self-esteem as they explore and observe nature. Learning outcomes are based on real-time explorations and experiences rather than predetermined concepts.

🗼Tall towers and teamwork! Our Bumblebees took on the challenge of building the tallest tower using only natural materials. With lots of teamwork, creativity, and problem-solving, each team successfully built a free-standing tower using mostly sticks and snow. At the end of the challenge, both towers ended up being the same height, so celebratory high fives were shared all around for a great, friendly competition! ... See MoreSee Less
