CT Experiential Learning Center (CELC) provides a full middle school program and offers workshops and special events for homeschoolers.
NEW CELC Offerings and Special Events for 2012-13
Outdoor Education with Common Ground High School
This seasonal outdoor education program allows students to be out of doors, to bond with their peers and with nature in the quiet setting of Common Ground and West Rock Park.
Students will participate in monthly sessions in the forest that will allow them to fully experience the change of seasons. We will explore the trails of West Rock Park and observe trees and woodland habitats, streams and water flow, and signs of local wildlife. Cultural uses of land will also be integrated into our hikes.
Dates/Times: Thursday 12:30 – 2:30 p.m. 30 MAY.
Cost: $10.00 per session. Recommended for ages 10 and up.
All participants must dress to be outdoors (raingear, protective layers and comfortable shoes to hike in, etc.) and bring a filled water bottle. Snacks are optional.
The intention of the Connecticut Experiential Learning Center is to challenge students and nurture their highest potential. By providing a learning community based in the guiding principles of respect, integrity, responsibility and individual learning, the innate desire of all children to learn, grow, communicate, and create is honored.
As we grow CELC, we hope to build a vibrant community to include people of all ages who share in our passion and joy working with young people and for lifelong experiential learning.
We hope to learn more about the interests of parents and students so that we can be an available and a more useful resource for families in our area. Ask about our homeschooling questionnaire. Become part of our community!
