Resident Program Manual for Teachers and Administrators. First Edition.
Since 1976, the Board of Cooperative Educational Services (BOCES) of Nassau County, New York, has utilized a 1600 acre site at Caumsett State Park for its Outdoor and Environmental Education Program. Once the estate of Marshall Field III, the center retains many historic buildings and provides a unique combination of natural habitats: fields, forests, pond, salt marsh, and seashore. This booklet has been developed to assist teachers and coordinators in planning 2 to 5 day resident programs at the center. Included are: resident program objectives; planning procedures; general information; a sample "RESERVATION REQUEST FORM"; a sample schedule; descriptions of the resident staff, site, accomodations, and food services; a list of recommended clothing and equipment; an emergency care permission form; a parent health survey; parent information; general procedures, rules and regulations; specific dormitory and dining room procedures, rules, and regulations; a summary sheet/checklist for teachers; and a site map.
