Curriculum

The Y Outdoor Education (YOE) program is an out-of-classroom experience that helps students connect with nature. Students learn about the environment and have an opportunity to test and apply science lessons. YOE meets and exceeds Next-Generation and Idaho Science Standards by helping students become excited through learning in nature. Start or end your school year with a fun and educational overnight program in the beautiful Idaho Wilderness. We tailor all curriculum and activities to fit your classroom’s needs and focuses.

Cooperation and communication are of primary importance and we encourage students to work together and appreciate their individual talents by creating positive social interactions among peers. Traditional camp adventures and team-building with different activities such as canoeing, archery, and our climbing tower that is shaped in the form of Idaho are also available.
