Outdoor schools—residential programs for students of upper-elementary through middle-school age—are located all over the nation. The themes of these schools are largely environmental in nature and promote stewardship. Many students attend outdoor schools to gain science knowledge and experience nature first hand. The purpose of this study was to look at the impacts on students attending outdoor schools, as seen by the people who run and work at them.
