Appleby’s Outdoor Education program has been providing outdoor fun and adventure for our students for over 40 years. The program is designed to safely introduce our students to the idea of “living” outdoors in the Canadian wilderness. Our focus is placed on experiences that lead to personal growth and character development. Our understanding staff help to guide our students through enriching experiences that allow each individual to develop long-lasting attributes. These qualities include responsibility, confidence, integrity, resilience, and the ability to work with others; all of which, we feel, contribute to the growth of one’s person.
The program begins at our Oakville Campus, where campers spend valuable time with our instructors getting acquainted and prepared for their trip to Rabbitnose Island, the location of our Outdoor Education centre. The group will then travel north via coach to Lake Temagami, approximately 500km north of Toronto. Once at the Lake, students and staff will take a barge to Rabbitnose, which is situated on the North Arm of the extremely picturesque Lake Temagami. Time is spent at the island developing skills necessary for a three-day two-night canoe trip. The region provides our students with some of Ontario’s most pristine wilderness – ideal for exploring and canoe tripping. Rabbitnose is home to our Main Lodge; constructed over 8o years ago, it provides our students with a true taste of the area’s rich history. Cabins for students and staff, the “trip-shed” (equipment storage), activity centres, boathouse, and sauna complete the list of buildings on the property.
The Outdoor Trip Guide is responsible for safely introducing students to the idea of “living” outdoors in the Canadian wilderness at Appleby’s McLaughlin Northern Campus on Lake Temagami. Reporting to the Director, Outdoor Education, this position is designed to encourage growth and development by enhancing healthy lifestyles through participation opportunities and educational experiences.
