About

Dedicated in October 2003, the Hanifl Centre for Outdoor Education and Environmental Study was funded by Paul and Suzanne Hanifl (Woodstock School Alumni ’63).  It was initially built to extend Woodstock School’s curriculum and to provide a facility and a programme through which students can learn about the Himalaya and develop their skills and knowledge in outdoor education.

It continues to contribute to the sustainable development of the region by transmitting an appreciation and understanding of the Himalayan environment to future leaders. Schools, colleges and universities from around the world visit the Hanifl Centre for a wide variety of different programmes.Read more
