The Deanery Project offers dynamic, forward-looking programs for all ages that blend environmental education with the richness of the visual and performance arts, all in a beautiful natural coastal forest setting less than an hour east of Halifax.
Located in a repurposed summer church camp for children, the Deanery Project has unique facilities to provide you or your group with an experience you won’t forget. Year round programs range from winter snowshoeing and survival craft to August’s Sealight/Skylight celebration of ocean phosphorescence and the Perseid meteor shower.
We focus on outreach to young people through school programs and teacher education. All of our programming is designed to increase the physical health and economic well being, especially for people living in rural communities. We are a demonstration site for low impact energy efficient natural building systems.
The Deanery Project’s facilities are also available for rent. There is a commercial kitchen with indoor seating for 100, dorms for 20 and beautiful camping sites. Our creative in-house resource team can work with you to develop experiential, place-based learning activities to enrich your programs.
