Outdoor Education

Take Your Education Outdoors!

Through hands-on experience, reflection and transferable skill development, the Outdoor Education program fosters transformative education. Rooted in experiential education, students participate in intentional, challenging, and group-based activities that promote wellness, positive relationships, and care for the environment through active experience in the outdoors. Outdoor Education offerings aim to instill an appreciation for the outdoors by providing space for significant learning and leadership cultivation.
