Outdoor Education Program
Welcome to the Outdoors
We provide students and visitors the opportunity to learn about a wide range of educational topics in our expansive Outdoor Education Center. Our curriculum is based on both the nationally recognized Next Generation Science Standards and Common Core standards, and scales by grade level for students in 2nd through 8th grade.
At the core of our Outdoor Education Center is a curriculum based on Next Generation Science Standards and Common Core standards. Curriculum outcomes are measured through pre/post assessments of participating students. Additionally, these assessments provide valuable feedback to teachers and principals hoping to incorporate Outdoor Education Center lessons into their own classroom.
Our Outdoor Education Program is unique in that it promotes social-emotional learning and development in key areas that are proven to mitigate the factors that contribute to generational poverty. We assess social-emotional learning development by asking campers to complete a short survey at the end of their visit that assesses their growth in teamwork, independence, and responsibility.
