Sahm 5th Grade Outdoor Adventure Education Program
This 3-day, 2-night program takes place at our Big Lost Campus, 45 minutes away from Ketchum, every Spring and Fall.
It is designed to immerse students in the outdoors and teach them important life skills. Students will participate in a variety of activities, including STEAM-based curriculum, outdoor adventure, team building, trust walks, mindfulness, movement, campfire stories, and healthy meals.
Through these activities, students will learn how to communicate, trust, and feel safe with their peers. They will also develop a new sense of accomplishment as they work through fears and become more personally responsible for their actions.
The overall goal of the program is to create healthy relationships between students and the natural world. Students will learn to appreciate the beauty and importance of nature, and they will develop the confidence to learn new skills and solve challenges as they arise.
IBC also encourages and includes teachers and admin staff from the school districts to attend the program at no charge. This is a great opportunity for teachers to connect with students more strongly and to build bonds of teamwork and respect. By learning and playing outside the traditional classroom setting, both teachers and students can explore new communication skills and learn to rely on each other in a new setting.
This program is currently offered to every 5th grader in Blaine, Custer, or Lemhi County.
