Outdoor Education Program

Program Vision 

Through the U-Nah-Li-Ya Outdoor Education program, it is our hope to instill an environmental code of ethics and an appreciation for the Earth in the youth that we serve.

Program Overview

The Outdoor Environmental Education Program is designed for students ranging from 4th to 8th grade, however the program can be altered to accommodate other groups if interested. Through hands-on educational sessions, cooperative exercises, and recreational activities, we strive to develop an understanding in students of their connections with each other and the environment AND MORE!

One of the cornerstones of the Environmental Education Program is our focus on learning being fun, interactive, and challenging. Classes cover many topics including Orienteering, Water Studies, Eco-Studies, Canoeing, Rock Climbing, and Cross-Country Skiing, to name a few. To continue the learning and fun, we also offer evening programing with activities including Capture-the-Flag, Night Hikes, Scavenger Hunts, and Campfires.  Our schedule also allows for important recreation time that fosters bonding and powerful memories they will talk about for years. 

OEE programs occur during fall, winter, and spring; therefore, each program is tailored to the season in which it occurs.
