Outdoor environmental education
With more schools recognizing the importance of OEE, Camp Shady Brook can help you to meet your educational goals. Developing awareness, increasing knowledge and building skills surrounding outdoor learning is our main priority.
Our OEE programs are taught by trained instructors, who teach with your educational goals in mind. Programs offered can be tailored to meet your specific focus and meet Colorado state educational guidelines.
Lesson plans include, but are not limited to:
- Fire and Forest Ecology
- Outdoor Survival Skills
- Compass Basics
- Water Exploration
- Night Watchers Night Hike
- Nature Hikes
Each lesson plan involves students to use those core skills such as teamwork, communication and reading and writing skills. In addition to OEE programs and learning, your students will experience living with others, sharing dining hall duties, cabin clean-up and group games and projects.
We offer healthy, delicious balanced meals and comfortable lodging. Day trips, multi-day and overnight retreats are available.
So get out of the classroom and come and experience focused learning outside! We can’t wait to have you here.
