If your goal is to help educate children about the environment in which we live -- then we share the same goal! YMCA Camp Campbell Gard’s Outdoor Education Program is a highly organized outdoor learning experience. We aim to help students find out more about the outdoors and themselves by providing teaching activities which take place in the outdoors. 

We believe that experiencing nature through hands-on exploration leads to lifelong awareness and understanding. Keep exploring our website, and we think you will find that our program is an outstanding complement to classroom learning and can assist you in meeting your curriculum goals.

In fact, your students will learn a lot more than the concepts and vocabulary that are part of the curriculum. The experience of an extended field trip that we offer leads to learning on many levels…academic and social. 

Our mission is to provide students with positive experiences in the outdoors that are exciting, interesting, and fun. Through our programs, students learn more about the wonders of nature, the value of history, and the diversity of individual qualities.
