Outdoor Education was an awesome class…
…that brought a bunch of kids together where we forged friendships, learned new skills, grew in confidence (and got extra credit, too!) I wrote this in high school – can you feel how much fun we had??
Many schools offer outdoor education classes.
It’s a great opportunity for shy kids to make new friends, for those who haven’t experienced many outdoor activities to be introduced to new skills in a safe environment, and for the nature-enthused, it provides even more experiences to enjoy.
- Fire building
- Survival skills
- Canoeing and paddling skills
- Water Rescue
- Camp trips
- Races and adventures
- Snow camping and cold survival
- The list goes on!

We did this during COVID… yes, as “adults,” and we had a lot of fun!
Here are some suggestions and gear for setting up your own backyard camping fest!
