What Educators are Saying About the Outdoor Education Programs at Earthshine Lodge
Thank YOU!! Those were by far my best memories of this crazy year. It brought me such joy to watch the children come alive with new shared experiences. I truly think it's these experiences that form the integral link between what we do in the classroom and the world beyond it. So so grateful!!
Had the pleasure to chaperone [my child's] school field trip in Earthshine Lodge. This was one of my top 10 all time favorite things I have done in my lifetime. Something about exposing and observing kids in nature filled my heart in a way that I was not expecting. Quite possible that I learned more from them than they learned.
