FortWhyte Alive School Programs
FortWhyte Alive is dedicated to providing students with the highest quality environmental education in an outdoor setting. For over 30 years, our programs have offered opportunities for students and teachers to re-connect and learn about nature… in nature.

We DO NOT cancel programs. We do have some alternate indoor activities to minimize outdoor time in the event of extreme weather conditions. Groups cancelling at least 14 days in advance of their program will not be charged. All groups failing to show or cancelling within 14 days will be charged 50% of the total fee.
Payment for your program can be made upon arrival to FortWhyte Alive. Cash, cheques, P.O., and credit cards are all acceptable methods. Invoicing is an option, but is subject to a $10 processing fee.
