Our Adventure Program is designed for middle school students to learn through outdoor experiences. Each adventure is based on subject specific curriculum, and helps teachers teach the state standards in a more authentic way. The adventures take the students out of the classroom where they can see, touch and experience what they are learning. These experiences create an environment where deeper and longer-lasting learning can occur.
While outdoors, the students are able to appreciate the natural world and learn how to take care of their surroundings. Students are also able to gain a variety of character building traits like selflessness, respect, perseverance, teamwork, and responsibility. These traits will help them to be better students and global citizens. We have taken adventure trips to Dinosaur National Monument, Lake Powell, Cedar City, Moab, Diamond Fork Canyon, Camp Williams, and Camp Tuttle.
During the 2020/21 school year, we felt it was important to keep the spirit of our adventure program alive for our students. As a result, we incorporated 1 day local opportunities that safely echoed a normal Adventure experience. These trips included team building at the HMHI ropes course, ziplining near Rainbow Bay, Science lessons on Antelope Island, hiking, campfires and s’mores. The students loved the opportunity to get out and enjoy a “normal” day during the pandemic!
