At EcoElsa we believe that anything can be taught outdoors. So our outdoor classes embody this mission. They are a combination of curriculum and activities to best fit the learning goals for the class. They can be adjusted to include a focus on secondary subjects or “soft skills” to create more cross-curricular learning. Individual activities can be adjusted to fit the learning styles of the people in the classes. We strive to make our outdoor classes an engaging experience for all by being flexible, fun, and full of learning!
Our secondary mission is making the outdoors accessible for more people. If you are looking to request a class for a group who traditionally has not found the outdoors to be accessible I welcome you to call us up and see how we can help. All are welcome outdoors you have as much right to experience as much of nature as possible as any other person. EcoElsa is more than happy to work with you and your group to help make the outdoors accessible for your needs. Please don’t be afraid to let us know we will find a way to make it work.
What Classes Do We Offer?
Our classes are grouped by which age group they are for. Some appear for multiple age groups and some programs can be adjusted for other ages. Classes are not meant to be a one size fits all. If you want to do it for an age group outside of the recommendation tell us in your comments so adjustments can be made. Click the links below to see what programs we currently offer to different age groups. If you know what you want head over the the Request a Program page! Also check out our Youtube channel for examples of some of the things you could learn or activities you could do in one of our classes.
