The goals and objectives of the Discoverers program are to; develop skills and become more comfortable in outdoor living. Develop and put into practice leadership and team building skills. Gain knowledge and skills in the environmental sciences and understand human connections to the environment.
Environmental education explores the science of ecosystems, plus relationships between people and their environment. We encourage participants to consider how their values and behaviors can influence and ultimately impact the world around them. Our curriculum and activities provide hands-on, memorable experiences that involve the whole person and address multiple learning styles
Discoverers will be investigating animal habitats and signs, learning about the importance of Minnesotas plants, exploring Wolf Ridge using a GPS, understanding how insects adapt and survive in Minnesota, canoeing, and swimming at Wolf Lake. A highlight of the week is an all-day adventure on the Superior Hiking Trail. Participants will enjoy learning & building friendships in a nurturing, fun environment.
