Inspire local young people to get back to school, reach their potential, find new outlets and passions, meet other young people dealing with similar issues, develop positive relationships with adults and elders, and discover their own culture and heritage. This includes programming for Indigenous youth, LGBT youth, those suffering from depression and suicidal tendencies, eating disorders, bullying and alcohol and drug abuse.

Nature-Based School Programs
Our programs will connect with current Provincial class curriculum before, during and after a class visit, so they can be used by teachers as a springboard to inspired learning. Kimbercote will ring clearly in the mind’s eye of children and youth as a place where they were empowered and challenged to navigate through their own exceptional outcomes.
Our extraordinary staff and highly qualified expert facilitators will address the toughest issues facing adolescents today and support youth in all domains – physical, mental, social, emotional, cognitive and spiritual. We will equip each young person with the tools to respond to challenges, and to be mindful of the need for balance. Kimbercote will be a place of support, belonging and engagement, adopting a strategy for the promotion of healthy, active living and mental well-being.
