We offer full-day outdoor nature-education programs for Kindergarten to Grade 5 classes. Programs use a variety of outdoor learning spaces at Comox Lake.
Spring 2020 programs are postponed indefinitely, due to the current public health crisis.
All of our programs are designed to promote environmental literacy and social and emotional growth through experiential learning. Fun games and engaging activities spark curiosity and invite participants to see with fresh eyes.
It is the mission of CLWS to provide educational programming and the Society generously supports the financial costs of all our programs. Our subsidized registration fee for each session is $120 per class (get in touch if this creates a financial barrier as further grants are available if required).
We provide all the equipment and ask that participants just bring waterproof and warm clothing, practical shoes, back-pack with water, snacks and lunch. Programs will run whatever the weather unless unsafe to do so. In which case you will be notified by 8am on the morning of the program that it has been cancelled and we will do our best to reschedule you.
We aim to make our programs as accessible and inclusive as possible. Each program can be adapted to your class’s needs and interests, please get in touch with any questions.
Starting September 2020, it is our goal to provide this program to every grade 3 class in the district. If you are a grade 3 teacher, please email for fall programs.
Overnight camping (without facilitators) is also available to classes in May, June and September at $100/night for Group Site B or 15% off regular campsites. Some classes choose to camp overnight before meeting their instructors in the morning for their program.
