Education GuideEducation ProgramsOur organizational mission is…

to present dynamic, entertaining and educational experiences through our iconic steamships and the Muskoka Discovery Centre.

Olivia Simpson, our Education Programming Coordinator, works with local schools and our highly skilled volunteers to create engaging and hands-on programs that meet Ontario curriculum expectations.

She worked with educator Derek Schofield, of K. P. Manson Public School, and our volunteers to organize a Canvas Kayak Building Course. This  series of workshops draws on the expertise of our volunteers who preserve boating history in our Heritage Boatworks facility. In our short video, the volunteers share their knowledge with ten Grade 7 and 8 students eager to learn how to build a kayak.

Kayak building is just one of over 40 programs offered at Muskoka Discovery Centre. Download our Education Guide.
