R.E.A.C.H.(Recreation, Environment and Cultural History) is a unique overnight educational camp program in which trained naturalists & recreational staff design custom programs to help encourage student interest in nature, history and outdoor activities. This offers an innovative way to teach your students about Kentucky’s cultural, natural and historical resources. It is a great project-based educational program with a little adventure thrown in!
Available at most of our Kentucky State Resort Parks, REACH camps are available November-May. Students experience the great outdoors and Kentucky history where it took place, which helps them cultivate an awareness of their natural and cultural heritage. Activities such as aquatics, geology, state history, plant identification and outdoor recreations skills, supply educators with valuable teaching components and make learning fun for students! These activities can give students experiences that relate to every course of study including natural science, math, history, language arts and social skills. Naturalists and recreational staff work with teachers to ensure that the program design coordinates into the classes' program of study and core content criteria. Groups should be a minimum of 20 guests.
