Outdoor Pursuits: Self to Nature Activities -- A Supplement to the Physical Education Course of Study. The Protestant School Board of Greater Montreal, March 1974.
Mingie, Walter; And Others
In keeping with the Department of Education's course content in physical education, this supplement to the Physical Education Course of Study was prepared. Suggestions for teaching and organizing classes in 16 "Self to Nature" activities are outlined. Activities are: backpacking, bicycling, boating, camping, canoeing, fishing, hebertisme (an outdoor gymnastic or obstacle course), mountaineering, orienteering, sailing, skating, skiing (Alpine and Cross Country), snowshoeing, swimming, and tobogganing. Objectives, equipment needed, skills, precautions necessary, class organization, and preliminary instructions are given for each activity. The location of the school in relation to the facilities required, the availability of the equipment needed, and the ability of the staff to conduct classes in these outdoor pursuits, will determine what activities can be offered to the students. Schools which have conducted classes in these outdoor pursuits have financed the facilities, equipment and transportation through such means as the athletic budget, field trip budget (transportation), direct charge to the participants, student sponsored money raising events, and assistance from the Home and School Association.
