Devil’s Glen Country Club
Enjoyed by generations for over 50 years…
Devil’s Glen is nestled within the Niagara Escarpment on nearly 600 acres of spectacular countryside, just 1 ½ hours north of Toronto and 20 minutes south of Collingwood. It has something for everyone in your family; from beginner slopes to some of the most challenging runs in Ontario, including an advanced Terrain Park.
Wild Ontario is a live-animal, environmental education program based at the University of Guelph in Guelph, Ontario. Our incredible team of staff, volunteers and animal ambassadors travels the province, spreading our love for Ontario’s nature and wildlife. We aim to teach, entertain, inspire and motivate. We love what we do, and we know that you’ll love it too! (See more Wild Ontario photos here)
We hear it all the time “Everyone loved the photo booth”
A photo booth will inspire excitement, spontaneity, and lots of fun!
With the latest digital technology and an ultra-compact design, the Georgian Life Photo Booth is guaranteed to be a great addition to your special event. We have been part of almost 500 events in the last 4 years and we pride ourselves on offering an ultra modern photo booth and a fantastic experience! Guests will have a good laugh, create memorable moments, and go home with an instant souvenir with your custom design, logo or special message! (See more Photo Booth photos here)
