Each year, Outdoor Education offers a variety of activities which engage students in a range of new and challenging outdoor experiences. These experiences are designed to offer educational opportunities for students outside the classroom while they build skills and knowledge about the natural environment.
Some examples of activities include:
- Whitewater Rafting
The largest man-made river in North America sits just a few miles from Queens. Each year students raft the mighty waters at the U.S. National Whitewater Center.
The scenic forests of the Carolinas offer unmatched views the southern landscapes. Students are taken on several hiking trips yearly to various national parks in and around the Carolinas.
The snow-capped mountains of North Carolina have some of the best slopes in the southeast. Students are taken to locations such as Sugar Mountain for a day of skiing and snow-boarding.
All adventures allow for a variety of ability levels where students join together to learn about themselves, their community, and their world. Students often discover new interests that provide lifelong enjoyment!
