5th Grade Outdoor Education

What is Outdoor Ed?

Outdoor Education is a four-day, offsite field trip that is planned each year for 5th graders. The camp teaches a hands-on science curriculum and social skills, and provides a taste of the responsibility and independence students will need when they advance to middle school.

Outdoor education is a fun, enriching experience that kids look forward to, and that they will never forget!
