Since 1978, the Scarborough Outdoor Education School (S.O.E.S.) has specialized in providing rich curriculum connected environmental and outdoor education programs to over 5000 grade 6, intermediate and secondary students each school year.

SOES is located in a wilderness setting 40 minutes northeast of Huntsville on the western border of Algonquin Park. SOES encompasses 400 hectares of beautiful rolling hardwood and coniferous forests and includes 3 pristine lakes in the Canadian Shield country.

During the summer SOES transforms into Camp Kearney, offering programs for campers 9 and up during the kids camp. Also offered this year is a Family Camp, an awesome opportunity to try out camp. New this year, Camp Kearney will be hosting a Women's Wellness Weekend August 19-21, sign up today!
