Campfire Stories: Collaboration & Hands-on Learning with Outdoor Education
TCS’s Outdoor Education program provides students with hands-on learning opportunities about topics they’re already covering in the classroom including conservation, ecology, and more. Every year, TCS students grade 3 and up take a camping trip to apply these lessons to the outdoor-world and develop collaborative, teambuilding skills along the way.
The camping trips promote exploration, adventure, and an appreciation for nature. Students make connections with the scientific and historical contexts that are naturally integrated in the geographical locations they’re visiting.
