The staff at Pioneer were warm and welcoming, and showed a genuine interest in our students. They were encouraging, knowledgeable about the various activities, and flexible. The students loved high ropes and mountain biking. It has been a highlight in our school year and we can’t wait to return next year!”

“Our goal was to have students interact with students they didn’t know, build new friendships and come together as a class.

The discussions and excitement lasted for weeks and gave the students who have never been to camp the opportunity to experience it at school.”

They experienced the beauty of Northern Ontario while learning about the outdoors, about each other, and about themselves.
