YMCA Camp Kirkwood is much more than a place to take students for a field trip. It is a special place providing students with a hands-on learning experience with nature through enriching activities in the outdoors. Classrooms come to life on our forest trails and lake and we welcome school groups and other learning institutions throughout the year. Our unique academic curriculum includes classes in science, teambuilding, and sense of accomplishment activities. We offer day trips, overnight trips, and two night/three day experiences for all grade levels.
Outdoor education will be available during the off-season. Right now, summer camp is in full swing! Check back later for updates on outdoor education dates and times.
