Cheakamus Centre - Outdoor School
The Cheakamus Centre (previously known as the North Vancouver Outdoor School) is a treasured overnight field school and educational resource for experiential environmental studies situated on 165 hectacres (420 acres) of ecological reserve in the Cheakamus River Valley near Squamish, British Columbia.  In nature’s classroom, participants can wander under 1,000-year-old cedars; gaze at hundreds of wintering bald eagles; watch a goat kid being born or marvel at thousands of spawning salmon. Learners are inspired to make more informed environmentally sustainable decisions through field study, outdoor recreation and other direct experiences in nature that instill a sense of respect and appreciation of the natural world.
