Outdoor School

Camp DaKaNi’s Outdoor School offers a hands-on, science-based program for Pre-K through 8th-grade students. Using the environmental education curriculum created specifically for Camp Fire Camp DaKaNi, students will gain a better understanding of nature and how to respect their natural environment while learning about some of the mysteries of nature during their day outdoors.
