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.

NEW! FRESH AIR FRIDAYS CAMP

Suitable for children ages 4 to 10.

Is your child needing a break from all the screen time? Are you looking for an outdoor program for your child that will complement their online learning? Bring them to Kortright this spring for our new Nature School Fresh Air Fridays Program!

Each Friday we will embark on a different outdoor adventure on our 555-acre property — including building forts in the forest, meeting the bees in our apiary, checking out the river, meeting the animals at the organic farm, catching butterflies in the meadow, or dipping for tadpoles in the ponds!

Register today for Fresh Air Fridays at Kortright!
