Ready to go wild? An Outdoor Education Teacher enables students to learn experientially about themselves and the world around them through sensory awareness, active participation, and using nature's resources.
They organize and oversee activities like rock climbing, canoeing, backpacking, orienteering, first aid, sea kayaking and mountaineering.
Often working with young people, many outdoor education teachers focus on facilitating vocational skills and career development activities that support self determination, employment readiness, and improved outcomes for all students as they become contributing members of society. Other Outdoor Education Teachers work with adults who are looking to build new skills or change careers.
