Flintridge Preparatory School’s Outdoor Education and Retreats

Prep’s outdoor education program provides stimulating and challenging experiences outside the classroom. The Director of Outdoor Education and faculty lead class trips, with a goal of strengthening class unity through team-building activities, individual reflection, and sharing of talents and skills. Lifelong friendships often are formed on these trips.

Retreats in the spring for 10th and 11th graders prepare students for the increasing independence, leadership positions, and mentoring opportunities they will have as older students.

Engagement with natural environments in California or anywhere else in the U.S. forms a significant part of growing up for many students whether in formal educational settings, organized leisure activities or through informal recreational experiences. It is also of interest for a growing number of overseas visitors wishing to experience California’s unique natural environments. Learning in Outdoor Education examines the nature and significance of the learning that takes place through these experiences.
