Teacher Reservation Information

Planning a Class Visit

The Joe R. Adair Outdoor Education Center is open to all public schools in Laurens County School District 55 and Laurens County School District 56.  Teachers may select from a variety of lessons, ranging from one hour to an all day Problem Based Learning Investigation.  If more than one class is in attendance, the expectation will be for a teacher to lead one class while the director leads the other.  Curriculum materials are available if needed, including team building games, scavenger hunts, and self-guided tours.  There are also hiking trails, a rope swing, and games for break times.  Whether an hour or a day, students and teachers will enjoy all the Joe R. Adair Outdoor Education Center has to offer.
