We have 1,200 acres with 15 unique ecosystems to build a custom outdoor classroom program around your schools needs. The Storer Outdoor School is a hands-on total immersion learning center serving more than 15,000 students from over 130 elementary and middle schools each year. Students and teachers spend 3-5 days and nights on-site at our Outdoor School learning facility. Storer’s staff of educators offer more than 30 courses that teach natural sciences, environmental issues, cultural history, and team building through active participation.
Disguised as adventures that create lifetime friendships, our programs cultivate life-skills critical for success in academics, career, family and community.
Living together in cabins and villages, taking open-air classes, and participating in a wide range of outdoor activities provides opportunities by design for:
1) sharing of knowledge and ideas,
2) conceptualization of needs and solutions,
3) development of interpersonal skills for helping people,
4) guidance to individuals and groups in the completion of tasks, and
5) learning day-to-day skills that result in the satisfaction of “a job well-done.”
Storer’s custom programs are tailored to meet the needs of more than 7,500 people who are members of community groups from a wide variety of backgrounds.
These programs are designed and conducted by YMCA Storer Camps in collaboration with the group. Shared goal setting for outcomes as well as combined leadership of activities ensure that each group’s needs are met.
