Physical Health and Wellness is vital to mental and emotional well-being.
- Build leadership and social-emotional skills outside of an urban environment
- Increase appreciation of nature and the outdoors by experiencing green spaces
- Broaden a student’s perspective about their capacity and potential through physical activity
Through our community partnerships with fitness centers, yoga studios, and other advocates of active lifestyle choices, our students have access to a wide variety of ways to stay active, and the support to keep them motivated.
Learning in nature has been linked to improved relationship skills, and reduced stress. Whether they’re hiking, overnight camping, or taking a quick trip to one of NYC’s many green spaces, our outdoor education program gives our students access to nature, enabling them to learn about themselves and their environment, and develop a lifelong appreciation of the natural world.
