Outdoor environmental education is more than just understanding environmental sciences.

As the CYO Camp staff builds upon a student’s academic understanding, we also develop the effective communication skills necessary for the core foundations of self-respect, social cooperation and strong communities. While here, students can take an active role in their education by participating in exciting hands-on activities with the natural environment. The CYO Outdoor Environmental Education program fosters healthy growth and development through positive relations with self, others, nature and God.

CYO Camp’s Outdoor Environmental Education program provides an opportunity for students to observe, explore, and discover in our outdoor classroom, as our staff facilitate learning through ecological studies, games and activities. CYO Camp supports teachers by complementing classroom instruction and enabling students to develop positive self-concepts and peer relationships that transfer back to the classroom.
