Our program and outdoor education team are delighted to work with school groups offering them an "outdoor classroom" experience. Outdoor education involves a living laboratory. It is an extension of the classroom where students can experience firsthand learning through action, exploration, and discovery. Students learn from real-life problems and observations, while at the same time they have profound opportunities for interpersonal and social development. In the process of living together in a 24-hour setting, students also develop skills in leadership, teamwork, decision-making, cooperation, and communication.
Our staff will work with your teachers and parents to create a safe environment that will challenge and stretch them to explore new and challenging experiences. Our trained staff members will oversee the ropes course, challenge course, and climbing wall. In addition to being well-trained on the outdoor elements, our staff are all certified in Emergency Response First Aid and CPR/AED for the Professional Rescuer. A nurse is often available by request if the school cannot supply one.
We can accommodate up to 150 students at a time. For mid-week school groups, teachers and parent chaperones may come at no additional charge with a minimum of 30 students. School groups are asked to bring 1 adult teacher, parent, or chaperone for every 10 students, and adults may be asked to help with food service before, during, and after each meal.
