Outdoor Education is a lifelong learning process that increases your child’s awareness, relationship, and dependence on the environment and its systems.
Some of the benefits of outdoor education are:
- Strengthens students’ sense of empowerment to make a difference in their community as stewards of the environment.
- Improves students’ academic achievement and growth through experiential learning and application.
- Gets students outdoors and active in learning.
- Activates and increases students’ physical, mental, and social health.
- Improves learning enjoyment by changing the pace and location of learning.
- Connects families and the community to the school through involvement.
- Builds culture and climate through a focus on common language, values, and purpose.
Community-based learning gives many opportunities to students and gives them a direct experience of the wider world to facilitate connections to community needs and how to meet them.
