Donate & Participate

Pictou County Forest School is a Not-for-Profit Organization.

Our goal is not to make a profit but rather to help young people connect with nature, learn, grow, and make learning fun.

We would like to thank all those who make donations to our school. We would especially like to acknowledge the CPRA and the Government of Canada, without whom our programming would not be possible.

Life’s Lessons Begin Here!

“Thank you Tanya and Caden McCarthy for presenting us with a generous donation from the NSCC Student Association to go towards our PCFS bursary program! It was a pleasure to have you come out on a beautiful snowshoe adventure.”

Sending a HUGE thank you out to the New Glasgow Branch of The East Coast Credit Union for a very generous donation to our Scholarship Fund.


Thank you for considering making a donation to the Pictou County Forest School. It is an extremely important part of our mandate to make our programs accessible to all members of our community.

We rely on donations in order to make this happen. Your donation today will go directly to helping cover the cost of tuition for someone in our community that would not normally have this opportunity.

Donations can be made by e-transfer to or by cheque.


In the future, you’ll also be able to participate and contribute to the Pictou County Forest School by purchasing limited edition clothing and gear.

All of the proceeds from our merchandise sales will go towards our scholarship fund, to enrol students in our program.

Look good and feel good promoting our cause by wearing PCFS Swag!


Our programs are designed to complement conventional classroom learning and homeschooling/unschooling choices. Our goal at PCFS is to work with schools and classroom teachers to help students reach their full potential.
