Outdoor Education is the opportunity to investigate nature’s wonders using your senses. Students can touch, see, hear, smell, and sometimes taste all the goodness outdoors, allowing them to deepen knowledge gained in the classroom. Our Outdoor Education program will enable your students to experience a Christ-centered outdoor education program that is both interactive and creative.
There are 13 unique education programs designed to fit into a 2 hour time frame. Most educational programs are geared for students, grade 3rd-6th (Adventure Programs 3rd-12th). Pick two for the perfect field trip day. Email us to discuss the best program for your group or request more info like pricing and available dates!
