FIELD TRIP PROGRAMS
Studies show that kids who play outside are smarter, happier, more attentive, and less anxious than those who spend more time indoors.
Each field study program is individual, and can be customized to create unique learning opportunities. We are happy to incorporate guided observation hikes and team building activities. The Center's facilities include hiking trails, a brook, recreation field, covered pavilion, picnic area, rain garden, and main building with large multi-purpose room. In warm weather, we can include a visit to the neighboring Highlands Natural Pool for a swim!
Our staff provides an attentive, hands-on learning experience and the applied skills to foster a lifelong curiosity for science and nature. Programs are designed around New Jersey state standards, and provide technical skill development immersed in the natural beauty of the Ramapo Mountains. Our programs are rain or shine; so please dress appropriately!
