Outdoor Ed Program
Join us for a day of nature skills and adventure in the wilds of Angrignon park. Choose a theme or two for us to guide you through or let us propose something special. We will offer games that teach, missions while we explore the woods, and other experiences and skills to challenge and grow our abilities and awareness. We can come to a park near you if you’d like – transportation costs may be added if it’s not metro accessible.

Here are some possible extra themes that we can collaborate on to bring to the activity. It would increase the price depending on what you are looking for.
Native culture awareness
With this theme, students will learn about local native culture, and contemporary native justice issues. This information is shared by native knowledge keepers themselves, who work with Coyote Programs.
Class content but outdoors
So much of the natural world can relate directly to the classroom! This theme allows these connections to be explored. For example, can physics be taught by exploring the simple machines in survival skills (knots, friction fire, projectiles)? Can math be learned by analyzing data collected about observing species in nature? Perhaps biology can be understood by working on a plant herbarium – the possibilities are endless!
This program, guided by Coyote Program staff, is designed to support teachers and students in preparing for a survival camping trip and to explore contemporary environmental issues. A series of activities during class time, lunch, or afterschool would culminate in a wilderness immersion weekend that brings together the forest skills we’ve practiced, and reflection time on our relationships to nature, community and self. This program would be custom created to best suit your needs and objectives, ensuring that it is a positive, safe, and supportive experience for the class.
