Bring the Classroom Outdoors!

Where adventure, education, and exploration come together!

There’s nothing quite like a camp experience to bring learning to life.  Nature and adventure experiences at Camp make it the perfect place for learning to really stick! Students love Outdoor School at Black Diamond Camp, because it’s hands-on, engaging, and fun! It’s also affordable and customizable to meet your group’s goals, including Next Gen Science Standards.

Experiential Learning

Black Diamond Camp Outdoor School aims to integrate hands-on, outdoor experiences with meaningful learning opportunities. Students will have the opportunity to ask, explore, and answer questions about the natural world to expand their existing knowledge about our earth in a way that comes alive. This program is based on the fundamental idea of learning through doing, experiencing, and challenging oneself in a safe, and controlled environment.
