With just under 200 acres and a large waterfront, the Glen Mhor site is a perfect location for your retreat group. Our buildings and site layout provide fantastic accommodations to visitors of any age, with a 5-minute walk to get to most places on site. The main lodge provides the perfect indoor area - housing a large stone fireplace, and a piano. All meals are held in the lodge dining hall. The site capacity is 140 participants.
The Glen Mhor site is fortunate to be situated on the lakefront, providing us with distinctive waterfront areas for swimming, canoeing, and kayaking. Land programs include an archery range, low ropes course, 32‘ climbing wall and bouldering wall, zip line, 5-element high ropes course, equipment for group and individual initiatives, throwing blanket, disc golf course, sports equipment, outdoor nature programs, arts and crafts, an extensive costume closet, music and drama room, beach volleyball court, and a trampoline. Other spaces include our chapel, campfire circles, playing fields, and acres of wilderness to explore.
We have a fully equipped Health Centre located directly beside our main lodge, available for all first aid needs. Additionally, all programme areas have access to fully stocked first aid kits, and each staff member carries a first aid kit with them at all times. The Huntsville Hospital is a 25 minute drive away in case of a more serious incident or injury. Should students require medication, they can be safely stored on site in either the Health Centre or in our locked medication bin. Please note that it is not the responsibility of the Glen Mhor Staff to dispense medication.
For overnight experiences, participants will sleep in one of the 12 on-site cabins. Cabins can sleep 10-12 people comfortably on bunk beds, with shelves for storage. Accompanying teachers and parent supervisors may reside in any one of these cabins located within close proximity to the group members? cabins or in the camper cabins with their group. All cabins are within a 3 minute walk to the lodge complex (dining hall and washrooms) and are a short walk to the waterfront and other areas on site.
The main washroom complex, including shower facilities, is located in the main lodge building. There are also KYBOs (outhouses) provided in closer proximity to all cabins.
The Glen Mhor Outdoor Centre provides excellent, nutritious meals, including three meals a day, an evening snack, and an afternoon nutrition break, if requested. All our meals are home cooked by our food service staff and are served in our dining hall. A menu is provided in the Teacher Information Package from which you can select the meals that would best suit your group. All efforts will be made to meet the needs of any special diets, given sufficient notice.
The Tuck Shop will be open at the end of your stay so that your group may purchase a souvenir of their visit to the Glen Mhor Outdoor Centre. We will have items such as t-shirts, sweat shirts, toques, hats, sunglasses, water bottles, camping mugs, and stickers. Note that the stock may vary each year.
