School Day Trips

Camp Kintail has many great opportunities for you and your class to take advantage of for a day trip! Whether you are interested in leadership and team building, environmental education, or just a fun year-end day trip – we have fantastic programming to offer! Working together, we will design a schedule best suited to your needs. Don’t want the hassle of bringing lunches? We offer great catering options as well! We strive to make your school trip better than you expect and to be the highlight of the year for the students!

You Choose Curriculum

We can accommodate both trips that last the school day or extended day trips that run into the evening. However long you decide to stay, you choose the program options that interest you and your class. A popular choice is our wide array of outdoor education sessions that can match with where you are in the curriculum. For each grade, we have established outdoor education sessions based on beach ecosystems or on the natural environment and habitats found around the campsite. We also have many other sessions that match with various parts of the curriculum, so if you let us know where you are in a topic, we can recommend the best session. A good example is a trip that recently came for outdoor education was studying fossils, so we could customize both a nature session and arts and craft session to match up with this!

Popular Activities for a Day Trip

Our most requested school activities include our Rock Climbing Tower, our Low and High Ropes Challenge Course  – which has a variety of individual and group challenge initiatives that promote teamwork and communication – Archery, and our 18 Hole Disc Golf Course. Some groups enjoy adding Canoeing and Kayaking or beach exploration to see our beautiful beach, while others enjoy sports like soccer, ultimate frisbee or gaga ball. Year over year, the most asked for and repeated program is a classic game of Capture The Flag on the playing field or in our cedar forest. We highly recommend ending your stay with singing around the campfire and roasting marshmallows! For more detailed descriptions, check out our Activities page!
