Outdoor Education

“The future will belong to the nature-smart—those individuals, families, businesses and political leaders who develop a deeper understanding of the transformative power of the natural world and who balance the virtual with the real. The more high-tech we become, the more nature we need.”
– Richard Louv

Why Outdoor Education?

The outdoor environment provides a place to learn, reflect, evaluate and share experiences. Students develop an appreciation for nature, a sense of adventure, confidence in their own abilities, the capacity for responsible risk taking, leadership, team work and decision making skills.
