The objective of the Earth Studies programs is to get students thinking about the future of Planet Earth. Sometimes all that is necessary is a fresh perspective on life. Experience siberian huskies, birds of prey (eagles, hawks, owls), and Canada's heritage horses -- while surrounded by nature.
Founded by the Cushing family, the International School for Earth Studies has been providing superb leadership in environmental education and animal connection for over 20 years. It's an award school in sustainability and good environmental practices. We connect campers to nature -- in a safe, fun and healthy learning environment.
We organize several summer programs for both older and younger students to connect with nature and animals. The shores of Indian Lake and our 250 hectare backcountry allows us to guide nature walks, outdoor workshops, overnight camps and gap programs.
Both local and international adventure seekers will find themselves immersed in outdoor activities such as camping, hiking, field research, canoeing, swimming, backpacking, biking, running and other popular outdoor activities.
We make our students feel at peace -- sharing stories, skills and developing our understanding of environmental issues. Our summer programs will introduce you to First Nation cultures and the importance of environmental education and traditional knowledge.
Travel on 31 Mile Lake, QC and tour the lower St. Lawrence of Quebec -- watch whales and experience the rich heritage of the Province. Our programs are constantly being updated and specialized to provide students with a rich and meaningful experience.
