Outdoor Education

CYJ hosts the nation’s premier environment education program, Nature’s Classroom Institute. NCI is a unique approach to outdoor education. We offer a fully customized, highly engaging 3 or 5 day experience that has direct positive impacts on classroom community and academic performance.

Our multi-disciplined, degreed educators integrate lessons with the curriculum of visiting schools in order to reinforce what is being taught in the classroom. With thousands of classes and activities to choose from, we create unique and individualized experiences for each and every student and teacher.

Your student will:

  • Learn through reflection on doing
  • Feel like they are part of a community by interacting with each other
  • Have an improved self-concept
  • Ask more questions back in the classroom
  • Grasp the personal value they can gain from education
