KSS Outdoor Education Core Competencies
We collaborate with teachers to customize each program based on their desired goals. All our programs are place-based and we strive to create a unique and memorable experience that cannot be facilitated in a traditional classroom. Students will have the opportunity to unplug, slow down, and enjoy being present in nature.
Each of our programs contain elements of environmental science, outdoor experience, and team and community building. Students will be in small groups with one KSS instructor, one chaperone, and up to 13 students and called “field groups.” Each field group will go out on a separate trail for their field day(s), where they will engage with the curriculum in an outdoor classroom. There is also time scheduled for larger group activities during the program.
