Areas of Education
Farm & Ranch
Ranch camps provide knowledge and real-life experiences to our students interested in knowing more about ranching. While getting to know a variety of farm animals is part of the curriculum, learning how to care for them, fun and not-so-fun activities are included. It should be noted this is a real-world environment rather than a petting-zoo experience.
Forestry includes all things forest related. Forests help in maintaining the temperature and oxygen level of the atmosphere. Forests being a huge reserve of plants and trees, they play a significant role in balancing oxygen level in the atmosphere. They are also key in life a we know it. We focus on teaching tree identification as well as forest health and the importance of forests in our lives.
Survival skills are important, but fast becoming forgotten skills. You never know when you might find yourself in a real-life survival situation, especially if you spend a lot of time outdoors. At L.O.V.E.S. Outdoor Education, we focus on teaching students how to build shelters, how to find water, how to start a fire, foraging for food, first aid, and situational awareness.
We work on gardening, preserving, crop and livestock production, homesteading, resource management, environmental sustainability, reducing waste, reusing, upcycling, and awareness.
L.O.V.E.S. Outdoor Education strives to create a student-centered environment in the great outdoors with the mission to provide holistic education to every student through a focus on science, technology, engineering, art, and math in order for all students to meet their own unique potential in a global society.
