The Centre is currently operated by the Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board in partnership with the Algonquin and Lakeshore Catholic District School Board. The Outdoor Education Liaison, Michael Gibson, is an employee of the Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board.
Quinte Conservation owns the land on which the Centre is located. The Conservation
Authority has assisted both in labour and financially with special projects. Quinte Conservation
also provides artifacts for the Sugar Bush demonstration and supports the Centre through its involvement in the Friends of the Frink Centre.
Since 1993, the Friends of the Frink Centre have played an important role by consolidating community support for the Centre and providing the funding necessary for special projects, such as the Wetland Ecology Boardwalk. The Friends of the Frink Centre have expanded outdoor education programs to the community by offering workshops, programs to Day Camps and other youth groups, and Family Activity Days.
