Group Retreats & Outdoor Education
Teambuilding, recreation activities, experiential education, heated cabins, excellent food service and year-round programming led by well-trained staff are the things that your school, church youth and adult, scout or corporate group can expect when you organize a trip to Camp Pinewood!
Nestled deep in the woods Camp Pinewood is the perfect place to bring your group. Our group programs stress the Y's core values of respect, responsibility, caring and honesty. Participants discover new facts about the natural world and, more importantly, themselves.
School Groups and/or Outdoor Education
Adventure & Environmental Education
Through numerous teaching opportunities including experiential education, journaling, singing and role playing, students are able to gain a knowledge of themselves or others and an understanding of where they fit in the natural world. Our approach is simple: by giving students the opportunity to succeed in a variety of ways we are able to teach them about responsible choices, caring for others and a respect for the environment. Camp Pinewood is nestled next to a spring-fed lake on over 200 acres of deciduous and coniferous trees. Our programs focus on using our location as a huge classroom where we can immerse students in nature and tech-free adventure.
We offer programs that will fit any teacher's needs and school budget. Are you looking for a one-day trip to set-up your students for success at the beginning of the school year? A week long trip to help develop young people in to responsible and confident leaders at your school? Camp Pinewood can help you to develop a program and schedule that is a perfect fit. If you have questions contact our Outdoor Education Director, Joanna Otis, for more programming and scheduling details.
