After their Outdoor Education experience at YMCA Camp Potawotami, students have a better appreciation for the natural world, new outdoor skills, enhanced group relationship skills and stronger personal ties with classmates and teachers.

Program Goals:

  • Provide a hands-on, safe and fun educational experience in a unique environment.
  • Strengthen the relationship between students and between teachers and students.
  • Teach lessons that enhance the Indiana State Standards.
  • Promote within students a greater sense of independence and respect.
  • Enable and encourage students to understand and experience the relationships between themselves and the natural environment.
