UBC Malcolm Knapp Research Forest- Wild & Immersive


Theme: Recreation and Outdoor Education

Location(s): Maple Ridge, Agassiz, Mission

Description: We provide an outdoor forest school program in 4 age groups:

1. 3-5

2. 5-8

3. 9-12

4. 13-18

During the 3 week field experience, individuals would be a part of leading outdoor, nature-based activities for these programs, and participate in the supervision of students. Candidates could also look through our modules and assess their content and better ways that they can tie into the BC curriculum. Candidates could also create their own modules and programs that they feel would work in an outdoor setting, on nature-based or environmental topics that tie into BC curriculum. This would be a good opportunity for your students to gain experience in a non-traditional teaching environment, and learning about outdoor education skills that they could take into the classroom with them.

We also facilitate field trips, and the candidates could be a part of leading those programs.

Associated Costs: Accommodation ($120/wk)
