Outdoor Education for Christian Schools

Jenness Park Christian Camp and Genesis Account have partnered together to bring an excellent outdoor science program for Christian Schools. We desire to help students draw closer to Christ by helping them understand His creation. Jenness Park is excited to bring the classroom outside!

Our program is designed to increase the students’ awareness of God’s love through a better understanding of His Creation. It also allows the students to deepen their relationships with peers and their classroom teacher.

Curriculum for fourth (4th) through eighth (8th) grades is taught by our instructors, who also provide the spiritual emphasis that undergirds our academic program.

“Genesis Account Outdoor Schools is probably the broadest and most highly developed outdoor education program designed specifically for Christian Schools and camps. The Genesis Account curriculum reflects thorough study by persons trained ..both in the Bible ..and outdoor education”.

Lloyd Mattson, Author,
God’s Good Earth & Christian Values in Outdoor Education

Outdoor Education for Public Schools

Jenness Park has also partnered with American Outdoor Schools to help bring a quality program for public schools. We want to see every student grow in their knowledge of science and nature. Please consider bringing your school to Jenness Park for your next Outdoor Education Program. We have provided a video below for you to have a glimpse of what takes place during our Outdoor Education Program.

Take a look at the curriculum and see how well it works with your school.
