Outdoor Education

Winkler Bible Camp’s Outdoor Education is a program where we desire to facilitate learning in a natural environment while teaching students to enjoy and appreciate nature. We encourage growth in social skills through interaction with adults and peers in a unique environment and promote hands-on participation in a variety of activities. We offer three seasons, 1-3 day outdoor education adventures for school groups. From September to June, students of all ages can take part in many of the exciting camp activities plus a variety of nature lessons.
