Since 1967, outdoor education has been an integral part of our school’s culture and curriculum, evolving to become a comprehensive Outdoor Program that is integrated with the school’s academic curriculum. With a campus located on 56 acres of lakefront property and surrounded by eleven provincial parks, one national park, and 15 conservation areas, you will be immersed in a landscape extremely conducive to living an active outdoor lifestyle.
Outdoor experiences are ingrained in our pedagogy and into every class offered at our school. We believe that our outdoor program is the foundation for academic success and it will help you to become more passionate about the environment, show gratitude for your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health, and develop insights about yourself and the world that will serve you well on your journey to adulthood.
We hike, read, paddle, think, portage, write, swim, solve, perform, and study. Indeed, we like to think we are preparing you for all situations. We like to think we are preparing you for real life. Ready For Anything.
Through challenging and inspiring outdoor experiences, the Rosseau Lake College Outtrip Program will expose you to powerful learning that is impossible to gain in traditional classroom settings. At Rosseau Lake College, you will be expected to be an active, enthusiastic participant in our multi-day outtrips each year.
Each trip is challenging, unique, and something that you will talk about long after you become an RLC alumnus. Sea kayaking, rock climbing, canoeing and portaging, and sleeping overnight in snow shelters are some of our many lived experiences.
When you graduate from RLC for your chosen post-secondary school, you will have a well-developed sense of self and the skills, knowledge, and confidence to take on any challenge. You will be ready for anything.
