OUR MISSION: To provide quality outdoor programs that enable participants to develop positive self-esteem, improve sound decision making abilities, and enhance social skills. Through appropriately challenging experiences and progressive, instructional activities, students gain new skills for effective communication, leadership, teamwork, decision-making, resisting negative peer pressure, relating to others, and developing values. The camp experience serves as a building block in the development of students into successful and resourceful citizens.
OUR VISION: To provide Outdoor Education Programs whose specific educational components and activities are designed to enhance the students’ classroom knowledge while improving communication skills, enhancing problem-solving, and building decision-making abilities. Even traditional, recreational camp activities are modified to provide intentional opportunities for students to practice decision-making and problem-solving skills in a safe, controlled environment.
