Get Outside

Thank you for your interest! Due to the ongoing effects of the coronavirus pandemic, our Get Outside program is not currently available. Please check back for more updates as they become available. 

Get Outside trips are day-long experiences allowing elementary and middle school-aged students a chance to explore the forests, splash in the creeks, play games, and to develop their sense of wonder through active outdoor learning including adventures in science, social studies, math, music, and folklore. We’re happy to talk with you and create a unique day for your organization! Our Durham location at West Point on the Eno provides an incredible backdrop for many different topics!
