2021 Stone Canyon Outdoor Ed Classes

LEADERSHIP: 

 High Ropes Course

“… ropes course provides your students with an opportunity for physical, mental, and social growth. Safely secured 30 feet in the air, students have the chance to gain confidence and test boundaries. Stone Canyon adheres to a Challenge by Choice model that encourages participants to set personal goals to challenge themselves, as well as support their peers.”

 

SCIENCE:

Aerodynamics

“In this fast-paced and fun-filled activity, students will learn the basic principles of aerodynamics. Utilizing the engineering process, Newton's laws of motion and other information, students will design and launch a rocket. Students will then use triangulation to determine how high their rockets were launched!””

Animal Survivor

“The forest becomes the classroom in this activity that teaches the importance and dynamics of food chains/webs and how species depend on one another for survival. Through experiential activities, our instructors help demonstrate the roles of herbivores, omnivores, and carnivores, as well as the availability of resources within a habitat.”

Energy Dilemma

“In the 21st Century, the dilemma is real! In this lesson we discuss renewable and non-renewable resources and the pros and cons of each. We also examine the ecological footprint we leave behind. The activity ends with students designing the blades for a model wind turbine and measuring the voltage produced by their design.”

Fire Ecology

“This interactive class will help students better understand fire behavior and the factors that influence a wildfire. Our simulation of a "matchstick forest" will allow students to fully explore the basics of fire science and the various aspects that affect wildfire behavior. Students will gain an understanding of fire mitigation and fire suppression strategies.”

 

OUTDOOR EDUCATION:

Archery

“…students learn the mechanics of archery, one of the oldest arts and means of survival. Students received a lesson on safety, basic physics of a bow and arrow, and time to hone their skills.”

Outdoor Skillz

“Our team of outdoor enthusiasts will be passing on real-world survival techniques to your students! Young survivalists will learn the 10 Essentials, proper fire-building techniques, emergency shelter building, and other basic principles for exploring the great outdoors.”

 

NIGHT ACTIVITIES

Campfire

” The perfect way to end any outdoor education experience! Camp songs, stories, stargazing, and bunk cheers make this activity a favorite. And we all know a campfire just wouldn't be complete with s'mores!

Barn Dance

“A fun, high-energy way to end the evening! Students learn different line dances to popular songs, as well as having some "free" dance time as well!
