Outdoor Education




Open from April-October, Camp Speers Outdoor Education programs are uniquely positioned to provide students with a rich experience-based learning environment with many of our programs meeting Common Core State Standards. We specialize in creating custom designed programs to meet the needs of your school. From an Environmental Education science program, to adventure based leadership experience, or a mix of both, we have a program to suit you. We can ensure that your program meets your objectives and that the students are provided with a fun and educational experience that they will remember for years to come.

There is a large body of solid evidence pointing to the fact that an outdoor education experience increases students desire to learn, their ability to communicate effectively, and their commitment to engage in responsible decision making.
