Mackie Lake House School Tours


2021 School Field Trips

Our 2021 field trips had a different look to them, but we were very pleased to have Ms. Cecilia Voth as our teacher candidate doing her Community Field Experience practicum.  Cecilia was able to have several classes and lead them on guided explorations of Fylton Forest. She did a fantastic job and was so flexible to adapt to the changes required by COVID regulations. We are looking forward to a return to normal for 2022!

We are pleased and excited to offer this field trip opportunity for School District #22 every spring. The Mackie Lake House Foundation is pleased to provide complimentary bus transportation for SD#22 students for these field trips.

Our field trip program can help you to meet the Prescribed Learning Outcomes in English, Language Arts, Science and Social Studies. Included in the field trip is a guided tour of the Historic Mackie Lake House including the history of the Lake House, the Mackie family and the Coldstream. You will also experience an interactive experience in Fylton Forest, an onsite outdoor classroom that facilitates exploration of our natural world.
