School Programs

At Y Camp our School Programs seek first and foremost to connect students to the outdoors, and to each other. In this hectic world of smartphones, tablets, social networking and fast food we are faced with a generation that is increasingly distant from the natural world and each other.

"Now, more than ever we need Nature as a balancing agent." -Richard Louv

Nature is our classroom. In our classroom the students don’t have to sit still, face forward or stand in line. Students will move, yell, giggle and play as they learn valuable lessons about nature, themselves and each other. Through our Outdoor Education and Leadership programs we offer customizable schedules that complement the great work already taking place in the classroom.Through our curriculum we help students challenge themselves to do more than simply remember facts and figures. Our staff guide students through hands-on experiences and analysis to connect their learning to both the outside world and themselves.
