OCTOBER 18 - 21, 2018 at St Eugene Mission Resort



From coast to coast, over 300 educators will have the opportunity to gather to learn, share and connect at this made-in-Canada environmental education conference. Learn more about this exciting conference here. Columbia Outdoor School is proud to partner with EECOM to provide on-site childcare for the 2018 Classrooms to Communities Conference at St Eugene Mission Resort in Cranbrook, BC.

While you are getting inspired in your conference sessions, let us take your children outside to explore and learn about the natural world around them. Our outdoor leaders will provide experiential Discovery Sessions that focus on water, trees, and wildlife. Your kids will be having so much fun they won’t even realize they’re learning! Additional activities include science experiments, arts and crafts, indoor games, outdoor games, and swimming in the outdoor heated pool (we provide a certified lifeguard). The full schedule will be posted shortly.

Our outdoor leaders are exceptional at what they do! Staff are experienced in child care and leadership plus have their National Lifeguard Certification, First Aid and CPR- C. We love working with kids and spend many hours leading and supervising children during our summer camp and school programs.
