The centre is located in the watershed of the Tatalu (Little Campbell River), with access to a salmon spawning river in a natural temperate coastal rainforest and to a working garden that uses sustainable farming practices. The students will be learning through hands-on activities and conducting scientific surveys as appropriate, to help them develop and achieve the core competencies of the BC Curriculum.

  • It is a great opportunity to be outside! Nature is the teacher and classroom for this program, and it takes place fully outdoors in rain, snow or shine.
  • It is accredited by the esteemed Heritage Christian Online School (HCOS).
  • It emphasizes a place-based learning approach with core competency skills that will equip students to carry the learning to their own place and serve them well in their tertiary education.

  • We believe strongly in empowering our students to learn and contribute to their community.
