Since it opened in the Depression as a ranger training camp, the Frost Centre in Haliburton, Ontario has been an important source of environmental and outdoor education. The government closed it down in 2004 to save a buck and caused a huge protest, so they put out a call to find a new use for it. Now it has re-opened as the private non-profit Frost Centre Institute, which is running a summer camp program for kids 10-16. Activities:
Environmental Science Program: Includes participation in real environmental research projects under the leadership of our resident and visiting scientists.
Visual Arts Program: Painting, digital photography, sculpture, pottery and stage décor themes taught by some of the top teaching artists in the arts-rich Haliburton Highlands area
Non-Motorized Water Sports Program: Expert instruction in sailing, kayaking, canoeing and life-saving swimming. Optional SCUBA certification program.
I know the area well; it is sited in one of the most beautiful parts of Ontario with endless canoeing and hiking. Still spaces left at ::Frost Centre Institute Summer Camp
