Bennett Centre School Programs
The Bennett Centre offers hands-on school programs that actively engage students in specific grade-level curriculum. Program options include day, overnight and travelling programs, with a focus on science and social studies. Many of the programs include outdoor components.
Due to public health restrictions related to COVID-19, in fall 2020, programs will be offered as travelling programs or as “Edukits”. The Edukit contains all program materials and equipment and includes a one-hour virtual lesson with a Bennett Centre instructor.
Included in the Edukit rate is a two day kit rental from the Bennett Centre including pickup and dropoff of the kit, all program materials and equipment, and a one-hour virtual lesson with a Bennett Centre instructor. Each kit includes equipment for up to one class, which is considered to be 35 students. The Edukit can be rented all day Monday-Tuesday with pickup at 8:30am on Wednesday morning or 12:00pm Wednesday - 12:00pm Friday with pickup at 12:00pm Friday. All equipment will be sanitized following AHS standards prior to drop off to new school.
One class is considered up to 35 students. 36-70 students is considered two classes. Please notify the Bennett Centre if your numbers change from the original booking.
The first contact teacher listed on the registration form will receive an information package approximately a month before the scheduled visit, including important information to help teachers prepare for the field trip. See below for more information on the programs offered.
