Camp Edwards has been running a successful Outdoor Education Program since 1958. Combining elements of Environmental Education, Adventure Education, and Social-Emotional Development, we work with our partner schools and organizations to design a custom trip to enrich their curriculum back in the classroom and to build a strong bond between students and teachers.
Environmental Education – With over 130 acres and 6 different ecosystems, the exploration is endless! Click on the class description link to see the classes we offer, from Wildlife Programs to Aquatic Critter Survey.
Outdoor Education – Step outside and get hands-on experience with hard outdoor skills. Try your hand at orienteering, archery, wilderness fire building, and more.
Adventure Education – With a climbing tower connected to a High Ropes course and an 800’ zip line, challenge yourself with these high elements. Or stay on the ground and work as a team with a variety of teambuilding games and activities.
Living History – Take a trip back in time and learn more about the Native Americans of Wisconsin and Illinois, the French Voyagers that explored the area, and the pioneers that all called the area home.
Live Cold Blooded Critters – Check out our Nature Center where we keep a variety of live reptiles and amphibians. Have your students hold these critters as they learn about each species and their relatives.
Maple Syrup - Just us as we walk your class or group through the entire Maple Syrup making process from tree to table. Help us tap a tree, bring the daily collection to the evaporator, and sample some Camp Edwards Maple Syrup. Check out of free community event the first weekend in April, Maple Syrup Day.
