TORONTO, March 16 /CNW/ - It is exciting news for environmentalists,
educators, artists, conference organizers and cottagers that the Leslie M.
Frost Centre, closed by the Government of Ontario in 2004, is re-opening in
June 2007 under government lease as the FROST CENTRE INSTITUTE, a
professionally managed private non-profit organization that will carry on the
great tradition of environmental and outdoor education programs that have been
the trademark of the Frost Centre for nearly 60 years.
Located on Lake St. Nora in the Township of Algonquin Highlands, County
of Haliburton, 12 kilometres south of Dorset on Highway 35, the Frost Centre
Institute's programs make use of the 2,500 feet of shoreline and 20-buildings
campus on forty acres, as well as the groomed trails on 58,000 acres of crown
lands in the Sherborne and Leslie Frost Forest Reserves and canoe routes of
the Algonquin Highlands.
The Frost Centre Institute's plans call for year-round operations
including an educational summer camp focused on environmental science, visual
arts and non-motorized water sports (sailing, kayaking, canoeing and swimming)
for boys and girls aged 10 to 16. Throughout the remainder of the year, the
Institute will provide weekday conference facilities for
public/private/corporate groups who wish to hold
meetings/seminars/conferences/retreats in a campus-type setting, and will host
environmental camps for Ontario schools on weekends.
