Buzz Around the Campfire in Temagami

Last week's Temagami Canoe and Duke of Edinburgh Award trip included a three-day paddle and camping voyage, as well as prep training and unpacking at base camp. Students pursuing their Duke of Ed (Bronze & Silver programmes) and the Grade 11 Outdoor Education program participated in this adventure. What a beautiful way to experience the northern landscape of Ontario and tune out from technology as we transition to autumn.

Thanks to our fantastic leaders, including Mr. Mac and Zach Smith '22, and our intrepid students. You all helped make it an incredible trip!

“There is no Wifi in the forest, but I promise you will find a better connection," was the buzz around the campfire.

Land Acknowledgment

CDS wishes to recognize and acknowledge the land on which the school operates. For thousands of years, these have been the traditional lands of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation. We also recognize the traditional territory of the Huron-Wendat, Anishinaabe and the Haudenosaunee peoples who also shared this land.  CDS respects the relationship with these lands and recognizes that our connection can be strengthened by our continued relationship with all First Nations, by acknowledging our shared responsibility to respect and care for these lands and waters for future generations.
