Resident Program Guide: Hillside Outdoor Education Center.
Founded in 1972 as part of the private, non-profit Edwin Gould Outdoor Education Centers, the Hillside Outdoor Education Center offers services to various educational groups by providing residential experiences for students and faculty, day-visit programs, school-site outdoor education programs, teacher workshops, college courses in outdoor education, and conferences. The Center is situated on a 50 acre site typical of an upland, glaciated, northeastern deciduous forest area and includes a lodge, log cabin and homestead area, 2 dormitories each capable of accommodating 32 students and 4 staff, a tenting area, and several staff residences. This guide provides information for center users: descriptions of facilities, a statement of purpose, health and safety tips, emergency procedures, sample menus, a typical daily schedule, program offerings, teacher guidelines, procedures for dorm supervisors, pre- and post-trip activities, sample bus games, songs, possible teacher-led evening activities, and references in outdoor education. Sample forms, records, and checklists for participating teachers, students, and parents include pre-planning teacher checklist, table chart for meals, dorm assignments, instructional group assignments, what to bring, health record, publicity release, permission slip, and evaluation forms. Maps of Hillside and its surrounding trails as well as directions for reaching the Center are also provided. (NEC)
