Outdoor Program

Scripps Nature Camp encourages children to learn by moving, playing and using all of their senses

There are many benefits of an outdoor education, namely building important physical, social, cognitive, and life skills that pave the way for academic learning later on. In addition, outside offers many opportunities for connection with the natural world around them, as well as negotiation, teamwork, and problem solving.
