Outdoor Education Philosophy

Appleby College’s Outdoor Education program strives to introduce and immerse our students into a total experiential learning environment. Leadership and outdoor education are the structural components of the experience-based curriculum that lend to the enrichment of our student body, faculty and community. Vital life skills such as, self-confidence, understanding relationships, personal growth and a dedicated responsibility toward our local and global communities are developed by using the medium of the out-of-doors. Challenging our students in settings and situations inherent to the program’s activities provides the opportunities to practice these skills under the guidance of qualified instructors. Activities include high-ropes, rock-climbing, canoe tripping, wilderness living and navigation, leadership training, environmental awareness, and winter camping. A delivered balance between technical knowledge and direct experiences is introduced in order to strengthen and develop each student’s future endeavours.
