A Resident Outdoor Education Program for Public Schools. Goals and Objectives.
A resident outdoor education experience for public schools enhances all areas of the curriculum and breaks down barriers between the various disciplines. Learning is more rapid and retention is greater because outdoor learning experiences involve all of the child's senses. Resident outdoor programs improve communications between teacher and student and promote group interaction in all phases of daily life. Objectives of such a program are to sensitize the child to a natural environment, to increase his capacity for observation and learning, to develop a sense of responsibility toward natural resources, and to provide outdoor recreational experiences.
