Education in Nature
July 2 @ 8:00 am - July 6 @ 5:00 pm
(Kroka Expeditions, Marlow, NH). This is a unique summer professional development offering by a well-respected wilderness camp for teachers who want to consider thoughtful and effective ways to bring their students to the outdoors; PDPs provided.
Kroka Expeditions invites experienced and aspiring educators to join a five-day professional development course. Educators will gain first-hand experience in outdoor living while exploring, with other educators, ways to bring the power of nature into their curriculum. During the first two days we will focus on the daily farm and adventure life at Kroka. Projects will include orienteering, rock climbing, preparing farm food for our expedition, making leather-bound journals, and developing fire-by-friction skills. During the following three days we will embark on a paddling expedition. Education in Nature affords a rich opportunity to envision an experiential curriculum in the areas of humanities, earth sciences, sustainability education, leadership, and the development of community and altruistic will in young people. Participants will gain inspiration and practical skills to make transformational changes in education!
