Outdoor Education and Camp Administration Concentration

The outdoor education option recognizes student interests in using God's creation in the outdoor environment as a tool to teach individuals to be good stewards of our natural resources. Natural resource management and planning is the focus in this option, as well as using outdoor activities as therapeutic tools in behavior modification. Working with youth at risk, juvenile delinquents, and academic underachievers is a typical professional pursuit.
