The Middle and High School Life Skills classes have been spending their Thursdays at Camp Big Sky in Farmington, as part of an experiential outdoor education program. Two education interns employed by Big Sky taught a curriculum covering weather, navigation, horticulture, and fire/outdoor safety. In between lessons, the students participated in various indoor and outdoor recreational activities. The students chose between a variety of leisure activities and had to factor in weather and the amount of time they had when making their choices.
We are fortunate to be able to partner with Big Sky to take advantage of this program at no cost to the District. The mission of Camp Big Sky is to provide accessible fishing, camping, boating and other related outdoor opportunities to children and adults with disabilities. The passionate volunteers make every experience special, and it is a place where our students are always able to fully participate.
