Science and Nature
Carol and Wayne Campbell are owners of the Hila Outdoor Centre
This 12 acre facility recently celebrated 25 years of science and
nature education. During this period the centre was home to Hila
Science Camp, a resident camp attracting clientele from all over the
world. The centre also hosts workshops for teachers,
students and clubs, covering topics ranging from nature photography and
astronomy to alternative energy.
The centre is located in the Upper Ottawa Valley close to the world class kayaking and rafting facilities on the Ottawa River and a kilometer from the Provincial Westmeath Nature Preserve.
Currently the centre is focused on producing educational videos and resources with a science and nature theme.
Many of these activities and videos are available online, follow the links in the side bar of this page.
