School Programs

All regions of the Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park provide Educational Programs for Schools and are a great way of taking the classroom outside.The idea is to get students into a place where they can experience learning in a context that they might rarely get to.

Not only does the Park provide a great opportunity to learn outdoors but also a great opportunity to be active outdoors with a variety of programs that contribute the physical health and wellbeing of students in both winter and summer.

Each region has its own programs. To find out more information about, or to book, these programs please contact the relevant Visitor Centre or click the link below.
