Outdoor Education is a truly unique program, teaching the basic skills of leadership, communication, and risk management. But above all, it teaches kids from a young age the importance of the environment .Each student learns about their own strengths and weaknesses and how persistence in extending one’s often self imposed limitations can bring success in the most challenging of situations be they physical, emotional or social. This ability to bounce back from setbacks or challenges with confidence and optimism is a vital tool for any young person as they enter adulthood.
Last week Goodrich attended outdoor education at Covenant Harbor. Students were able to spend a night away from home enjoying each others company and learning outside of the classroom.
