More About Headwaters Academy

WELCOME TO OUR CLASSROOM

Headwaters Academy is located north of Markdale, Ontario near the Niagara Escarpment.  Specifically, we are located on a beautiful 160 acre wooded property replete with ponds, trails, outdoor pavilion, campfire amphitheatre, main lodge, sugar shack, playing fields and swimming pool.   The facility is used as a camp in the summer time because of its magnificent rural wilderness setting. Our students benefit from partnering with this highly respected organization in our shared use of the 160 acres of outdoor space bounded by the beautiful Beaver Valley and Niagara Escarpment.
