At Cheakamus Centre, we are committed to providing excellence in teaching and learning in, for, and about nature. It’s through hands-on experiential learning that students are best able to make sense of the world and this is especially true in outdoor settings. All our educational programs are tied to the BC Curriculum, ensuring that time spent outdoors supports learning objectives and core competencies.
The 5 Guiding Principles of Place, Inquiry, Community, First Peoples’ Perspectives, and Personal Connections are all tied to direct experience. These themes provide a framework that informs our program design and development; as well as support and enhance curriculum connections. The following blogs contributed by the various individuals on the Cheakamus Centre team, as well as guest bloggers, reflect these guiding principles.
