Outdoor Education: A Guide to the Instructional Program at the Sixth-Grade School Camps.
Fox, Denver C.
The outdoor education program for sixth graders in San Diego County is described, along with an account of its development and the financial support structure underlying the program. Eleven major outcomes that can be expected from participation in the outdoor education program are enumerated. An intensive pre-camp teacher-training program carried on at camp is summarized. The instruction guide contains detailed information about all learning activities (democratic living in a camp setting, safety and health practices, outdoor science activities, conservation, and creative expression) in which children of the San Diego district participate during their camp experience. A glossary of technical terms used in the discussion of programs and practices at the camps is included. A related document is RC 003 276. (DA)
