Outdoor Education

Enrich Your Present Curriculum

Northern Lakes Impact Center offers both day (Grades K-2) and residential (Grades 1-12) programs. Residential programs can range from 2 days / 1 night up to 5 days / 4 nights. In addition, we can even bring some of our programs right to your classroom!

Our comprehensive curriculum focuses on educational concepts geared to meet the standards in Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Michigan.

Students will discover that learning comes naturally as they work with their professional instructors to explore the outdoor settings throughout our partner camps. Our program encourages active participation in each study session, including hands-on experiments combined with first-hand experience.

In addition to environmental studies, schools can choose to include social outcomes in their curriculum. With classes like Initiatives and Low Ropes, schools can design programs that will teach students conflict-resolution skills, enhance self-esteem and develop leadership potential.

  • · Animal Habitats
