During COLT you live at Strathcona Park Lodge, the busiest outdoor education centre in Canada with more than 25 professional instructor/guides from around the world.
The employees that call the lodge home are welcoming and inspiring. They will be your friends and mentors and offer networking opportunities which may help you segue into the professional outdoor scene.
Positive learning environment
Defined by our mission to teach the wonder, spirit and worth of people and the natural world through outdoor pursuits, the Strathcona community supports and encourages each other from the office staff to the maintenance crew.
You’ll eat at the same table as other Lodge guests, COLT instructors, staff and even the Boulding family who run the Lodge.
Alternative life style
Strathcona Park Lodge is a self-contained off the grid community. The entire operation is powered by a micro-hydro system. We also treat our own drinking water and heat some of it with passive solar technology.
Our kitchen creates meals that are nutritious, healthy and delicious and cater to a range of diets and dietary preferences. We work closely with local fishers and farmers to source as much food as possible from as close to the Lodge as practical.
