The Muskoka Woods Experience

For more than 26 years, Grade 8 students have been travelling to Muskoka to learn how to become leaders through faith-based outdoor activities.

Muskoka Woods Experience is scheduled to take place from October 14th to October 21st, 2022. Please contact your principal for additional details. 



The History of Muskoka Woods

The experience began in 1994 with one Grade 8 class and a yellow school bus travelling 550 km to the Muskoka Woods Resort, which is located on over 1,000 beautiful wooded acres and 2,800 feet of shoreline on Lake Rosseau, in the heart of the Muskoka Lakes Region. Since then the experience has evolved into a leadership opportunity for every Grade 8 student and every high school student enrolled in a  leadership program within the WECDSB. 

Muskoka Woods provides the ideal environment to challenge students through activity, recreation, and faith-based education, in a beautiful outdoor setting. The purpose of the experience is simple:
