Outdoor Education Program
The Middle School Outdoor Education Program has several goals: to provide students with personal and group challenges outside the classroom, to integrate fitness and problem-solving with outdoor educational experience, to provide students an alternate arena for appropriate and safe risk-taking, and to develop student leadership skills. The Outdoor Education Program commences with the trip to Camp Cedar in Casco, Maine, at the beginning of the year and continues throughout the year. One full school day three times a year is dedicated to activities that encompass either individual grades or the entire Middle School. Activities include, but are not limited to, camping, canoeing, cycling (on and off road), hiking, orienteering, rafting, rock climbing, snowshoeing, and cross-country skiing.
