Conferences photoThe Outdoor Classroom Project regularly hosts Outdoor Classroom conferences. These inspiring events take place either at the Outdoor Classroom Project model site, the Child Educational Center in La Cañada, California, or at a variety of other locations. Conferences feature a wide range of workshops on topics such as Outdoor Classroom implementation, activities, curriculum, and teacher engagement. We offer tracks for both new and returning participants, giving ECE professionals the unique opportunity to acquire and enhance skills for developing, cultivating, and sustaining outdoor programs and environments.
