School Age Fieldtrip Curriculum
The education staff at Honey Hollow is dedicated to providing quality educational programs using the outdoors as a classroom. Field trips to Honey Hollow are designed to introduce basic concepts of ecology and while creating life-long connections with Pennsylvania’s environment. Student groups that visit the Honey Hollow Environmental Education Center explore that natural word through experiential, hands-on field activities and cooperative learning games.
Field trip curriculum is designed to correspond with the PA Department of Education Academic Standards for Environment and Ecology and can be differentiated according to grade level and classroom goals.
Summer Science Adventures
Transform your summer camp and offer your campers an unforgettable science exploration adventure! Field trips to Honey Hollow generally consist of a brief introductory presentation followed by a hands-on science field activity. Cooperative learning games and nature or science concept related crafts are also often included to engage children in a way that is both educational and fun. If you can’t travel to visit us...perhaps we can come to you! Many of the activities we offer at our site can be successfully transferred to other locations. Outreach programs can be arranged for a single morning– or schedule a series of visits and make science come alive for the budding scientists in your care.
Autism Spectrum Disorder Community Outreach
This program strives to increase the participation of students with ASD in the school-age education programs at Honey Hollow. Through specially designed fieldtrip curriculum, we hope to facilitate the meaningful engagement of students with ASD in learning that takes place outdoors in an authentic community setting. To accomplish this goal, BCAS educators have designed outdoor recreation activities that focus on the skills targeted in autism support classrooms, such as motor skills, sensory integration, social skills and language development.
