"I believe that I learned as much as the students about caring,
respect and cooperation. After twenty-one years, it was wonderful to recollect why I
became a teacher in the first place... Please extend my sincere thanks to your staff for
creating such a successful experience for us."
At Nature's Classroom we give students and teachers the chance to experience education from another perspective, outside the walls of the classroom.
Nature's Classroom is a residential environmental education program, at thirteen wonderful sites in New York and New England. Most schools take advantage of our five-day program, while some decide that a shorter stay will work for them.
After spending a week at Nature's Classroom, living and learning together, students develop a sense
of community, a confidence in themselves and an appreciation for others that carries over
to the school community.
750,000 children and 450 schools have come to view Nature's Classroom as a solid
academic experience, with an emphasis on scientific inquiry and critical thinking. We have been recognized for excellence by the National Science
Teacher's Association, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, and the State of
We have been offering the very best in environmental education for 40 years.
Classroom students take an active role in their education by
participating in exciting hands on motivational activities which are both academic and enjoyable. Our project oriented classes help students realize the importance of their classroom subjects.
A Unique Educational Experience
with 13 wonderful locations:
students to grow in trust, caring and sense of place in the world and
how each person touches and affects others around them. I expected their
knowledge of the environment to grow.... You all have more than met my expectations. In 13 years of outdoor education, this is the
strongest program I have experienced."
