Muskoka Maple Trip

October 07, 2018    CCISS 


Muskoka Lake is situated on the most southern part of Canadian Shield, approximately two hours from Toronto. It is picturesque and fascinating every autumn. On October 6th, Centre for the Canadian International Student Services (CCISS) organized students to visit the beautiful Muskoka Lake. Students had an opportunity to walk into Bethune’s Memorial House, enjoyed the maple leaves and made beautiful maple leaf crafts. 


Students took a picture in front of Bethune's Memorial House, which is a picturesque example of Victorian-era architecture. 


This clapboard house is a site of great historical importance to Canada, China and the world. 


Students were reading Bethune's  life stories.


Students were hiking together alongside the Lions Lookout Trail.


One of our students was  enjoying the view of Muskoka Lake.


Students were invited to have a quick break in the local pastry house. 


Students collected maple leaves during the trip and they designed bookmarkers creatively.


Students were learning how to make a maple leaf bookmaker. They used the laminator to seal maple leaves.


Look at the maple leaf handicraft students made! How fascinating it is! 


Students had their pictures taken with the magnificent autumn scenery at Lions Lookout. 


CCISS will consistently hold activities every week and we invite everyone to be a part of us!
