Experiential Outdoor Education & Adventure

Environmental Outdoor Education is a core component of our curriculum at Steward. Through daily outdoor experiential learning and adventure, students develop their leadership and team-building skills while learning about themselves, about others and about the world around them.

Our Environmental Outdoor Education course combines environmental learning, wilderness education and adventure-based physical activities that allow students to practice and learn how to communicate, work together and take risks. Environmental Outdoor Education class varies by the day and season.
