Every year at the end of October, sixth grade students at Coleman have the amazing opportunity to attend Outdoor Education at Camp Edwards in East Troy, Wisconsin. Coleman School was one of the founding schools to participate is this program in 1956 and has participated every year since. Our staff view this experience as a unique opportunity for students to participate in hands-on ecology, SEL, and STEM activities in a beautiful, off-campus setting.
Below are the learning targets of Outdoor Education:
- To encourage students to apply knowledge and skills acquired in the classroom to real-life situations.
- To assist students in cultivating an awareness, concern, and respect for our natural environment.
- To provide students with experiences that foster positive self-esteem.
For more information, please contact one of the 6th grade teachers. Specific information about Camp Edwards can be found here.
