Raising healthy children for a healthy planet.

We all want our kids to thrive.  Play in nature, a healthy environment and a supportive community are keys to well-being. Landmark activities can help you on the journey.

Wow! So many local kids are having wonderful opportunities for outdoor learning! Three cheers to all the fabulous educators who share their ideas by sending reports to our website. These are our current leaders in giving kids Landmark experiences this year (since July 1, 2022):

Pathway to Stewardship & Kinship is a foundation for nurturing healthy and engaged children and youth. Through simple, age-linked “Landmark” activities that grow with them, children gain vital tools for physical and mental health, and lifelong relationships that bring joy and meaning to life.

When families, schools and the community work together to give these experiences to every child, the benefits are deep and lasting – for all of us, for future generations, and the world we share.

Pathway to Stewardship and Kinship began in Peterborough, Ontario.  Directed by Camp Kawartha in partnership with many regional friends, its principles speak to any community.

“It didn’t matter that it was chilly or that the bugs and grass were tickling us. The feeling we had lying on the hill staring up at this immense blanket of stars was undefinable. It was wonder. It was serenity. It was connection.”

Our community’s journey is unfolding on the Treaty 20 Michi Saagiig territory, and in the traditional territory of the Michi Saagiig and Chippewa Nations, collectively known as the Williams Treaties First Nations, who are stewards and caretakers of these lands and waters in perpetuity.
