Outdoor Education / 5th Grade Camp






Walled Lake Outdoor Education Center adjacent to the Proud Lake Recreation Area, Commerce Township, Michigan





Welcome to Camp!

"Every child should have mud pies, grasshoppers, water-bugs, tadpoles, frogs, mud-turtles, elderberries, wild strawberries, acorns, chestnuts, trees to climb, brooks to wade, water-lillies, woodchucks, bats, bees, butterflies, various animals to pet, hay fields, pine cones, rocks to roll, sand snakes, huckleberries, and hornets: any child who has been deprived of these has been deprived of the best part of his education. (Luther Burbank)

Part of our role as educators is to provide a well-rounded education for our students. That education is intended to prepare those students for their future. What will their future be without a natural environment that is healthy? The goal of our outdoor education program is not to make botanists or geologists of our students, but to provide them with an awareness of the outdoors and the impact that they have on it.
