EPS Outdoor Education Program
There is value in exploring the outdoors, connecting with nature, and being physically active. Our Outdoor Program provides a range of outdoor opportunities for our students. The Outdoor Program includes Outdoor Adventures for both Middle and Upper School students during the regular school year with more intensive opportunities for extended trips offered each spring during EBC Week. Our goal is to make these trips easy entry for young people with little or no experience and to help them become capable and confident with knowledge and skills to enjoy in wilderness areas all over the world.
Below is a list of typical outdoor events offered by the EPS Outdoors Education Program. The exact events and programs vary from year to year and depends on calendar, chaperone availability, etc.. Students are welcome to help initiate and organize outdoor events and outings.
Please watch the Weekly Student News and Friday Family email for notices about specific, upcoming outdoor opportunities. These notices include details and links or instructions for registration and typically announce outings 2-4 weeks before they happen.
If you have any questions, please contact Experiential Education Coordinator David Kelly-Hedrick.
