Winter Rentals

The last 6 km of road to the Centre is not plowed in winter and the main buildings are not winterized and thus not available for rent in the snow season. However the Centre is a beautiful destination for winter campers. The A-frame building and outdoor classroom are available to be used as shelter for a fee of $7 per person per night. This includes dry wood for the wood stoves, use of the permanent orienteering course and an ice-auger for drilling holes in the pond for water or for ice fishing. Get in touch for more information!
