OUT School POD programs
100% OUTSIDE from a program that ran 55 week-long, Covid free youth camps in 2020
Its early to find hard evidence for the efficacy of school POD groups on academic performance and mental/social health. Its our belief that being IN a safe learning POD can provide youth with a unique and intimate friendship and social experience. It may be one of the few silver linings that some students are experiencing from the 2020 experience. Alongside our ability and interest in getting students outside we are available for both:
Existing/established academic PODs that want to add an outdoor component
Students who would benefit socially from joining/establishing a POD group
We have instructors available to work with established PODs providing outdoor experiences on a regular basis that fits the interests and/or needs of your POD and the families of the POD. Working with groups in this fashion affords a great deal of flexibility to create experiences that students are most excited about. Everything from lessons on bushcraft skills to mushroom hunting hikes, fishing forays, archery or frisbee golf, we can create something that takes advantage of the particular interests and passion of your POD.
For the students who would benefit from joining an established POD we can help you. Contact us to find out what options exist to become part of a stable POD group of similar aged students for online work and/or an outdoor programming POD.
