Celebrating 50 Years of Chewonki Outdoor Classroom

Today, we’re marking a significant occasion: Outdoor Classroom’s 50th year. This special anniversary is more than a milestone in time; it’s a testament to Outdoor Classroom’s enduring relevance, effectiveness, and transformative impact. As we reflect on five decades of teaching, it’s evident that Outdoor Classroom’s mission to foster a deep connection with nature and peers, build essential outdoor living skills, and instill a sense of stewardship for the natural world is as vital today as it was fifty years ago.
