A field trip to Cave Springs is, without a doubt, a great way to bring students outdoors and connect with one another in new exciting ways. It’s a dynamic way to launch a new term, enrich the student experience in the middle or celebrate near the end of the school year. We are a year-found facility and can host your field trip any time of year in cold or warm months.

We are located in Lincoln, Ontario and are beautifully nestled on the Niagara Escarpment with access to the Bruce trail. We offer fun camp experiences for elementary and high school students that emphasize outdoor exploration, team-building and leadership development. Our site includes hiking trails, forests, a pavilion and open areas for small and large group activities. Our indoor spaces include a dining hall, Conference Centre, and heated cabins.

Our school activities bring students into the outdoors and spark cooperation, critical thinking, and creativity. They encourage communication and leadership skills that are needed for success. Through having fun and working together, students form lasting connections and trust with their peers. Reflection takes place during and after activities to identify and apply what is learned. Trained Cave Springs staff lead all activities and adjust the program and facilitation to suit all grade levels. We create a schedule of activities based on the interests of your group and can tailor activity packages to different curriculum needs.
