Environmental Education

Environmental education programs focus participants on excitement of the natural world using hostels as a base for learning. Participants ages 6-18 encounter native species of plants and animals and star-filled skies, in locations in forests or near water.

Through investigation of natural habitats, hands on activities and discussions, young participants develop an appreciation and respect for nature, an understanding of the principles of ecology and conservation, and an awareness of human impact and dependence on the environment.

Hostel stays are shared living experiences that encourage participants to be aware of and sensitive to the needs of others. Interpersonal skill development and intercultural understanding are both critical development areas incorporated into environmental education programming.
