What you can learn from a day at TimberTop!

Science: Help students explore the wildlife and ecological ecosystems found in an old-growth forest. Our courses can provide some unique lessons in engineering and physics. TimberTop is also located within the UNESCO Stonehammer Geopark- a great venue to enable a hands-on experience with our local geological history.

Conservation: There’s no better way to learn about why we need to conserve our planet than to interact with nature itself. Use our forest setting to discuss carbon footprints and sinks, and how humans and nature live together.

Physical Education: Explore the importance of how an active lifestyle can be a lot of fun. With varying levels of challenge difficulty, students will be testing their leg/arm/core strength, endurance, balance, agility and problem-solving abilities.

What to Bring

Water and Snacks

Comfortable clothing

Full-coverage footwear

Gloves

These are mandatory; we recommend work or fingerless athletic gloves. If you don’t have your own, we sell them for $2.75-$4.50 for youth and adults or $2 for children.

Hair elastics for long hair

Completed waiver form

We offer the option to complete it online, or you can fill it out when you get to the park. Note that any participants under 19 must have their waiver signed by a parent or legal guardian.

Picture ID

Make sure that at least one person in your group brings a government-issued photo ID to temporarily exchange for your party's safety equipment (harnesses, helmets, etc.). We will keep this ID safe and sound attached to card specifying the number in your party. After your adventure, and once all of the gear is brought back to our front office, you receive your ID back.

Locker Rentals

For any of your personal belongings, we have lockers available for rent at $4, for the duration of your visit. Limited availability.

Accompanying Adult

For those 8-11 years old, one supervising adult is required to climb for every 10 students. For climbers aged 12 and older, 1 teacher is required to supervise every 20 students, from either the ground or the trees.

Safety First

Safety is our number one priority (ensuring you have a good time is a close second!). We use a top-of-the-line Bornack SSB (Smart Safe Belay) carabiner system, which ensures the user can’t accidentally unclip themselves from the safety line while in a course. Climbers are always secured with at least one carabiner until their feet are back on the ground. We also use the latest helmets and full-body harnesses to further ensure your experience is the safest it can be.

In Canada, usually treetop adventure parks opt in to specific safety regulations set by ACCT in the US as a minimum. We do more than simply meet these regulations – in fact, we’ve chosen to build our park to go beyond North American standards. We’ve opted to build and be inspected to the more stringent European safety standards – ones that have been around for nearly 30 years and were created in a place where parks like ours are much more common.
