OUTDOOR EDUCATION PROGRAM
OUT-OF-THE-CLASSROOM EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING
Outdoor Education can be simply defined as experiential learning in and about the outdoors. There are many benefits for students getting out of the classroom and learning by “doing.” Outdoor Education at Deer Run creates a positive, fun and active educational outdoor experience by promoting student growth through 5 pillars: Courage, Stewardship, Teamwork, Knowledge and Problem-Solving. The Deer Run Camps & Retreats Outdoor Education program is taught and facilitated by highly trained Deer Run staff.
1. Helps students achieve higher grades and standardized test scores in reading, writing, and math.
2. Promotes character growth by building self-esteem, teaching cooperation, practicing leadership and navigating conflict resolution.
3. Provides an excellent opportunity for students to thrive outside the traditional classroom.
