Outdoor and environmental education is one of the many ways we inspire young people to connect with the world at the Y. We believe it’s important for all young people to get in touch with their environment and learn about their natural surroundings!

Although not all of our camping and youth services offering face-to-face services at the moment, you can follow these instructional videos and activity sheets at home or in the classroom and see some of what you will experience in outdoor and environmental education at camp.

Learn about conserving our waterways with Marine Debris, local fauna with Wildlife Encounter or discover how to prepare for an outdoor adventure, and much more!

Our outdoor and environmental education content supports the Learning Framework delivered to each group at YMCA camps.
