Flexible Learning Opportunities

Teachers rejoice! Let us help you achieve curricular competencies in multiple subjects with flexible program activity options. Speak with our insightful education staff about what you’re hoping to learn on your trip and we can customize a “Build your Own Overnight Experience” just for you!

Step Up Your STEM Skills

Grab your hand-lens, multimeters and thermometers! From renewable energy technology, to agricultural sciences and ecological restoration our programs focus on developing applied field science skills for Grades K – 12. Younger years will learn the basics of field observations while older years will gain hands-on experience with scientific tools used by environmental science professionals.

Build Better Connections

Nothing is better for social bonding than learning together by day and singing by the campfire at night. Watch students cheer on their classmates in “pollinator” relay-races and chuckle at unconventional friendships that are made while students figure out how to boil pasta on a camping stove for the first time. With new playmates and stronger friendships your students will be begging you to stay longer.

Boost Your Outdoor Confidence

Realize the worth of getting your shoes a little dirty sometimes. With increased urbanization and the rise of technology kids these days just aren’t getting outside like they used to. Let us lift the barriers to the outdoors by showing your students the ropes of outdoor risky play.

Champion Youth Environmental Leadership

Create the environmental leaders of tomorrow by having your students experience the intrinsic value of nature in-person. With sensory-based learning activities your students will walk away with a deep understanding and respect for the relationships between people, plants, animals and the physical Earth systems that keep us all alive.
