A SCHOOL WITHOUT WALLS IN THE GREAT OUTDOORS
Mount Royal is one of the largest and most important green spaces in the metropolitan region. Easily accessible, the mountain is the ideal location to discover nature and history, or to experience an unforgettable outdoor activity with your students.
The school programs offered by Les amis de la montagne take place mostly outdoors in Mount Royal Park. Students can therefore, enjoy an exceptional site where nature and history meet. Our approach is focused on awakening a sense of wonder in each individual and deepening our overall understanding of the environment.
The programs are geared for all levels: pre-school, elementary school, high school and including day care services. We can also tailor our programs to specific requests at the Cegep and university levels.
We have also created pedagogical kits containing diversified educational material. We propose a variety of recreational activities that furthers the experience of students visiting the mountain. Finally, certain programs can be offered directly in the classroom at your school.
