Outdoor Education has been in existence at Black Rock Retreat since 1988. One of the best features of our program is that the Black Rock staff can program nearly everything for you. Teachers and parents who come along as counselors have the opportunity to learn and participate with their students. Students and teachers alike get to know each other on a new level.
Areas of Study Include:
What Past Chaperones Have Said:
"My first time at Black Rock. I enjoyed it and learned things too. Glad to know this program exists and glad to see how the staff take every opportunity to point to God and His goodness." - Parent
"I think the program is excellent and give good illustrations for students to grasp science concepts and relate them Biblically." - 6th Grade Teacher
"I loved it! I know the kids will come away from this experiance with an incredible love for God and His creation. This will be one experiance they will never forget. And their relationship with God has grown by leaps and bounds, along with their appriciation of nature. Thank you for taking care of us and for having some really clean cabins!" - 5th Grade Teacher
"I enjoy the outdoor classes and the structured schedule. Plus all the games with no tv's, ipads, etc., great for one on one time with God." - Parent
Another teacher from New Jersey said: "I love the way the staff presents everything from a Biblical perspective and makes sure the students make that Biblical connection."
A New Jersey Teacher says: "The students were learning/ discussing how to make God a priority"
