Outdoor Education

Outdoor Education

Y Camp has two very distinct Outdoor Education Programs with different goals. 
Environmental Education and Leadership Program. 

Y Camp’s Environmental Education Programs are used to enrich the classroom curriculum as well as reinforce literacy, math, speech, music, art and physical education. The residential program has the greatest impact on retention with students spending 2 to 3 days at camp. Teachers can look at the programs offered and choose classes that fit their curriculum.  For more information, you can look at our brochure.

 The Leadership Program develops problem solving skills, cooperation, risk taking & trust.





Experience nature and have students come out for an education experience they will never

forget, come have fun during summer camp or bring your group out for an outing and training.
