Outdoor Education program beneficial to student participants
September 20, 2018
It is impossible to heap too much praise on the Aspen School District's 8th Grade Outdoor Education program. As parents of a child who participated in this year's Outdoor Ed, we thank the visionaries who started the program and the hundreds of people have kept it going through this, its 51st year.
The kids learn more about themselves in one gritty week than a semester's worth of seminars or workshops could ever show them. To a person, anyone who has taken part recalls it as a seminal experience in their young lives. It is such an important program for kids to participate in and we hope it continues for many decades to come.
