Fair Glen’s 130 acre Outdoor Classroom is re-opening for Day Trips

This upcoming school year, we hope your family and students have access to “green spaces” so that they can maintain their physical and mental health by being active outside!

We invite you to come to Fair Glen to enjoy a DAY of learning with your family or class across our 130 acre Outdoor Classroom!

In the new year 2022, we will continue to offer Day Programs this winter (January/February) & re-open our Maple Sugar Bush for tours (March/April).

With fresh wilderness air and the opportunity to study the biological world in a socially distanced fashion, this school-year marks the pivotal moment when the Outdoor Classroom has become the “safer learning environment”.

What makes us unique?

Fair Glen is unique from other Outdoor Education Centres because we not only offer environmental education to Public Schools but we are able to extend the learning with optional biblically focused debriefs from a Christian Worldview! Through these Outdoor Creation Experiences your students can get to know God more intimately by noticing the details in His creation! Romans 1:20

COVID-19 Camp Update

Since 1985 Fair Glen has offered year-round outdoor education experiences for families & schools, but it was with a heavy heart that we shut down our facilities & many of our programs for the first time in 2020. While camp was quieter than normal without the 80+ staff living and working at Fair Havens, some exciting new wildlife visitors moved in! (Subscribe to the NEW Fair Glen YouTube channel to see upcoming nature videos to find out more!)

Fair Glen’s re-opening strategy will include

1. Fair Glen – Day Programs 2022 (PDF) Targeted to Home-schooling Families or Student Cohorts.

2. Fair Glen – Equipment Rentals 2020-21 (PDF) – Sanitized before/after use (Day Use, After-school Rentals & Weekends).

3. Fair Glen – Facility Rentals 2020-21 (PDF) 3 acre sports field & equipment.

4. Retreat Programs for Family Cohorts staying overnight at Fair Havens

Fair Glen is excited to announce a new ONLINE MINISTRY through our YouTube Channel! While certain hands-on “experiential education” is not possible through a computer screen, we hope these videos inspire you with a wonder/curiosity at the complexity of God’s creation & motivate your family to get out exploring it this year!
