Outdoor Education

at Nebraska 4-H Camps & Centers

Each year, hundreds of students and their teachers from schools across Nebraska participate in hands-on, engaging Outdoor Education programs and experiences at one of the two Nebraska 4-H Camps & Centers. Outdoor Education is typically held during the months of September to November and March to May. These programs:

  • use the outdoors as a stimulus for the appreciation of previously acquired skills, including the areas of reading and language arts, science, mathematics, art, health, physical education and social studies.
  • teach an appreciation, understanding, and awareness of the natural world by studying and interacting with that world.
  • separate kids from their everyday setting.
