Kitchen Garden Program

Pleasurable food education teaches students to grow fresh, seasonal produce and use it to prepare nutritious, delicious food. Students are given all the skills, experiences and role modelling they need to learn to love their veggies and make healthier choices about what to cook and eat, for life.

School Camps

School camps provide a wide range of benefits – development of social skills, independence skills, decision-making skills, increased environmental awareness, and learning new skills. At school camp, children will be exposed to a range of activities that they may not have tried before. When away from their parents, children are often more adventurous and willing to try new things.
