Camping and Outdoor Education.
Bucher, Charles A.
Outdoor education has become an integral part of the curriculum in a number of schools across the nation. Outdoor education activities can be readily integrated into physical education, recreation, and adult education programs, as well as science, mathematics, and related fields. Camping and outdoor education should become a part of each child's school experience since they can contribute significantly to his intellectual development. It is recommended that institutions of higher learning, especially teacher training institutions, provide more actual experience in the outdoors, and provide added professional preparation opportunities through course offerings in camp administration, crafts, guidance, and actual camp supervision experience. An interdisciplinary approach is an ideal way to prepare leaders for outdoor education. (DA)
