CPAWS takes environmental education outdoors with our interpretive hikes and snowshoe programs.
Take learning outdoors and celebrate nature! Offer your students an inspirational break from the classroom with a full day interpretive hike or snowshoe program. We recommend completing the in-class program components first and finishing with a hike to complete the learning experience.
*Space is limited. Reserve your spot now by completing our booking form here. For questions email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 403-232-6686.
When: Full-day, May/June and September/October
Who: Grades 3 - 12
When: Full-day, mid-January through March
Who: Grades 4 - 12
Cost: $250-$275 plus GST per class for hiking or snowshoeing depending on the number of classes booked. Maximum 34 per group (includes adults). We provide an interpretive guide for the day. You provide a bus, supervision and snowshoes (if required). During March at Brown Lowery you may want to rent ice cleats for a winter hike in addition to or instead of snowshoes, depending on snowfall.
Adult Chaperones: We require the following student to adult ratios.
Bussing: Busses must stay on-site all day for all locations outside of Calgary. No exceptions.
Requirement: Teachers participating in our outdoor programs must complete and return the teacher checklist on the last page of the above packages. If your school is not part of Calgary Board of Education (CBE), Calgary Catholic School District (CSSD) or Rocky View School District (RVSD), every participant (including adults) must fill out our waiver.
Snowshoe Rental: For your information, Nomad Mobile Gear Rentals has partnered with us to offer a 15% discount off group rentals and will deliver and pick-up the snowshoes at your school free of charge. The University of Calgary Outdoor Centre also offers showshoe rental discounts for school groups. If you would like to book your snowshoes through them please fill out their Group Booking Rental Form and email it to email@example.com (even though the form says firstname.lastname@example.org).
