About Your Day 2017-10-03T20:35:52+00:00

Expect to be outside all day long.

  • All groups will experience outdoor activity during their time at the center.
  • Activities take place outdoors, rain or shine.
  • Activities are generally in the woods, on unpaved trails, along creeks.
  • Trails can be muddy at any time of the year.

Everything you wear may get very dirty, wet, or muddy.

  • Cotton clothing, such as sweatshirt, retains water and provides NO WARMTH when wet.
  • Wear a hat to shade from the sun in warmer months and to keep heat in during colder ones.
  • Dress in layers. You can always take something off if you are hot, but cannot add something you don’t have.
  • Gloves or mittens are a necessity in colder months.
  • A raincoat is always a good thing to bring, regardless of weather forecast.

No sandals or other open footwear, due to potential foot injury.

  • Most activity areas are rough and unpaved. Some trails are steep.
  • Gym shoes or hiking boots are appropriate in warmer months. These WILL GET DIRTY.
  • Waterproof boots or snow boots are required on rain days and in colder months.

KCOEC Staff needs to be notified of students requiring special attention, prior to arrival.

  • Consider that most days will involve a hike over uneven terrain. Wheelchairs or walkers will require prior planning between the KCOEC Staff and the Lead Teacher coming with students.
  • Inhalers for asthmatics.
  • EPI pens for those with severe allergies to bee stings.
  • Diabetics with specific needs.

Electronic devices and jewelry are to be left home or at school
