Outdoor Learning Program
Our Outdoor Learning Program (OLP) strives to connect every participant to nature through outdoor adventure. A wide range of groups will find the OLP to be a positive and enriching experience. School groups, sports teams, church groups, scout troops, corporate groups and more are welcome to participate in Outdoor Learning Programs.
Our Outdoor Education Programs center around using adventure to connect participants to the outdoors and nature. Participants will encounter the curriculum experientially, using multiple senses to interpret the concepts being presented. They will be able to touch, see, smell and, in some cases, even become the things they are learning about—giving them opportunities to make truly meaningful connections.
Teambuilding programs provide an immersive experience that asks participants to focus on creative problem solving and group goal achievement to overcome challenges. From group initiatives to climbing events and high ropes courses, participants will explore and demonstrate some of the most essential components of teamwork—communication, cooperation, support, and trust. Facilitators will engage students in a debriefing of each activity to reflect on the group’s challenges and successes.
The cooperative and relational nature of all our OLP programming promotes Social Emotional Learning that gives participants the tools to build confidence, interpersonal skills, and empathy. We not only implement community building, but also focus on personal growth by giving participants the choice to set their own goals and to challenge themselves to step out of their comfort zone into their learning zones. Having this individual choice encourages participants to examine their sense of self as well as their own physical, mental, and emotional well-being.

We work to provide quality programming to all people, regardless of ability. Please let us know of any disabilities or impairments that may have a bearing on your program involvement, and we will do our best to accommodate you.
We seek collaborations with schools that work with low-income and otherwise challenged youth. To help, we make financial aid available for groups, depending on need.
Arrangements for financial aid are made as a part of the registration process and are usually based on the number of students that qualify for free and reduced lunch programs.
