Outdoor Learning Experience. Project CHILD. Implementation Guidebook Series.
Using the Outdoor Learning Experience of the Children's Demonstration School for migrants as an example, this guidebook is intended for administrators, program directors and potential funding sources who are concerned with the development and implementation of an outdoor learning experience for children. A model is provided that can be used as a starting point for program development rather than as a firm model for replication. The major goal of the Outdoor Learning Experiences (OLE) is to provide positive outdoor educational experiences that lead to an individual's discovery of his or her own potential. The immediate objectives of OLE are to provide a variety of educational, recreational, and self-realization activities for migrant youth (ages 8-16) in a highly motivational outdoor setting. In addition to the program objectives and an overview, the document provides guidance on planning the program (funding, administration, facilities, staffing, activities, equipment and supplies, implementing the program), implementing direct service, evaluating and monitoring the program, and resources. Appendices include a menu, typical food list, counselor orientation packet, parent and general information packet, and an activity and skill checkoff sheet. (BRR)
