Winter Outdoor Adventures

Winter Outdoor Adventure programs are offered during January and February when schools have Winter Sports. The focus of BEEC’s Winter Outdoor Adventure programs is to provide students with opportunities to explore the outdoors through hands-on winter ecology games and activities and to learn about winter survival strategies. Through these activities students will deepen their connections to the natural world and develop a unique sense of place. Each week a new topic will be explored.

Each hour and a half or two hour session will take place primarily, or all, outdoors – depending on the needs of the group and weather conditions. Sessions can take place at BEEC, at your school, or at Living Memorial Park. Contact kristina@beec.org with inquiries.

Winter World ~ Grades K-3/4

Let’s explore the amazing world of winter. We’ll investigate animal winter survival strategies, birds in wintertime, animal tracking, camouflage, finding shelter, animal relationships, and play games that mimic their winter behaviors.

Winter Outdoor Survival ~ Grades 4-6 or 5-8

Could you survive the winter living outdoors?  What can we learn from animal winter survival strategies?  Exploring the outdoors we will practice nature awareness, track animals, learn bird language, identify plants, build snow shelters and make a winter campfire.

Winter Adventures ~ Grades K-6

A blend of the above two programs that will best match the needs of the individual group.
