The Bennett Centre

The Bennett Centre is one of the top 5 field trip locations in Edmonton (as rated by the Edmonton Journal) and is a unique field trip location in the center of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

The Bennett Centre enhances in-class learning by providing hands-on experiences that actively engage students on specific grade-level curriculum. Students will work towards developing their cooperation skills, team work and personal initiative.

Whether you are looking for an overnight experience, day trip, travelling program to your school, or an outdoor activity, the Bennett Centre has something for all school grades.

The Bennett Centre is also an excellent destination for community and corporate groups requiring an in-city day retreat location, meeting place or overnight group accommodations.
