Bradford Woods has been hosting residential Environmental Education programs for over 60 years. Our tradition of hands-on learning engages students in the environment while educating them about the relationships that connect us to our surroundings – environmentally, historically, and culturally. This leads to an increased connection and awareness of the environment, which promotes stewardship through educated decision making.Research has also shown that our Environmental Education program creates positive change in socio-psychological attitudes among student participants.

Day and residential programs are designed to be an extension of the classroom combining academic, social, and recreational experiences in a fun, camp-like atmosphere. Whether writing a poem about a soaring Bald Eagle, collecting aquatic insects for a biotic index, or listening to Native American legends while gazing into a starry night sky, students see their learning come alive.

Come check out a sampling of what students do at Bradford Woods by coming to one of our Environmental Education Open Houses. These two-hour sessions are designed for parents, teachers, students and families to become more familiar with Bradford Woods.
