Children’s programming at Kortright is designed by Ontario Certified Teachers (OCT) and led by experienced outdoor educators.

All of our programs involve an adventure into a woodland setting. Children interact with the natural environment through creative play, crafts, games, stories and more. This child-led approach to learning is exploratory, inquiry-based and fun.

For more information about our children’s programming, please contact Customer Service at (416) 667-6295 Ext 602.


Recommended for children ages 1 to 5.

In this weekly program, youngsters will explore a new nature theme each week. The format allows for consistent structure with flexible content. Parent or caregiver participation is required.
