The course is designed for educators teaching elementary through middle school who want to use outdoor education to expand their curriculum. The course involves hands-on learning and encourages teachers to integrate this new material into their classrooms. Topics include team building, living history, natural science, ecology, and conservation. You will find yourself off the ground on our challenge course, transported back in time with Redhawk, paddling a canoe down the Fox River, and investigating the many lessons waiting for us all outside. It is truly an opportunity for experiential learning!
