Catamount Institute


What

Catamount Institute outdoor programs with schools, after school, and during the summer show kids, they have the power to be leaders in their community and change the world. By connecting thousands of kids to the outdoors each year, we harness their natural sense of wonder & curiosity to help kids change how they see themselves, the world, & their role within it.

Why

A local teacher said, “You make science come alive for our kids! The activities are geared to ignite their curiosity.” We believe that all kids should have access to nature and high-quality outdoor education programs. Time spent in nature boosts happiness, positive emotion, kindness, physical & mental health. We take a holistic approach to ensure the greatest benefit to each child & our environment.
