Hands on Learning Outdoors

Outside Classroom

School looks different for every student. These days, children have options for alternating days between home and school, all online, or have home-school. During the past years of unconventional learning, Catamount Institute leaned into meeting the needs of all students, no matter where they were taking classes. We want to use our newly widened scope to provide outdoor science classes to enhance your child’s cohort learning during the school semester!

Open the door to the outdoors

The Outside Classroom is designed to enrich at-home learning for children in pre-existing cohorts
with expert small group instruction and exploration.

The Outside Classroom is designed for student cohort groups. Ideally, the same students meet in-person with an Institute educator once a week for 4-6 consecutive weeks, and are close in grade. Cohorts should be around 10-15 students.

What is the Outside Classroom?

The Outside Classroom offers an outdoor science centered class that your child will attend once a week for 6 weeks. During this time they will explore local ecosystems with Catamount Institute’s trained staff members. All lessons will align with the Colorado 2020 Science Standards. Not only will children get a break from screens they will get an opportunity to socialize with new friends in the great outdoors.
