The Bennett Centre

The Bennett Centre is located in the heart of Edmonton’s river valley and is a unique destination for field trips, day retreats, weddings, and overnight group accommodations.

Due to public health measures related to COVID-19, our program offering has changed. We are offering programs for grades 4-6 through Edukits only. Junior high and senior high programs as well as school overnight programs are currently unavailable. The Bennett Centre is also closed to walk-in visitors. For facility bookings, we are continuing to follow AHS guidelines regarding gatherings. Please contact the Bennett Centre through Metro Continuing Education at 780-428-1111 or email metro@epsb.ca for more information.

Thank you for your understanding.

The Bennett Centre is operated in partnership with Metro Continuing Education.
