We are lucky to have again secured our first choice as the venue for the eastern Canadian Experiential Education Practitioners Symposium: The Bark Lake Leadership Centre in Irondale, Ontario.  Bark Lake is right in the heart of Ontario's Haliburton Highlands region, which probably has the largest concentration of experiential facilitators anywhere in Canada, (certainly per capita).  Other factors that make Bark Lake an ideal choice include:


Beautiful wilderness backdrop


Excellent accommodation at reasonable rates


Full dining facilities


Comprehensive ropes course (several high and low elements)


Multiple workshop spaces


Fully equipped camp-style recreation options

With a long history as a youth camp, it was extensively upgraded by the provincial government as a professional training and development centre before it was sold several years ago to an international college.  (I think that's right!)  Anyway, its amenities exceed those of most 'summer camps', while operating well below the resort price range.  It is remote but accessible, being just two hours from Toronto.

The Leadership Centre's isolation means that we can really focus on the learning and connections for the few days that we are on-site.  It also means that you will probably want to join the rest of us for the six meals in their dining hall and two night stay.
