Outdoor Education for Schools

Our Outdoor Education Program enables students to connect with each other while they live, work, and play together. In addition, they gain respect for themselves, each other, and the natural world through experiences that don’t happen at school or home. Outdoor Education helps to build the types of relationships that will enhance learning back in the classroom. We work closely with teachers to supplement the classroom curriculum with hands-on experiences.

An Outdoor Education trip can help to strengthen the school’s sense of community. Day trips and weeklong programs are available. Our most popular program is a 3-day, 2-night experience. Camp Nissokone Outdoor Education Leaders receive formal training to deliver experiential learning activities. In addition, they’re passionate about helping children learn and grow.
