At Camp Fletcher, we bring academics outdoors! With over 300 acres to explore, Camp Fletcher is the perfect place for students in public, private and homeschools to experience nature through hands-on, collaborative learning experiences. We have a broad spectrum of academic and educational lesson plans that were designed specifically for Camp Fletcher, all of which meet Alabama State Department of Education core curriculum standards. A field trip to Camp Fletcher is the perfect way to energize learning and to teach your students to become ecologically literate, responsible citizens!
Field trips at Camp Fletcher can cover a wide range of subject areas and topics, and we always include plenty of hands-on activities. Our program staff is committed to working with your class or school and finding the perfect curriculum to meet the needs of your students. From archery to environmental science to our brand new Education Garden, we know students will learn, grow and explore when they come to Camp Fletcher.
Our curriculum is designed with Camp Fletcher as the classroom. Our programs utilize an interdisciplinary approach to promote the appreciation of our natural surroundings and the values of working together. From learning about science by the creek to developing team-building skills on the ropes course, every aspect of a field trip to Camp Fletcher will leave students interested, engaged and excited about learning. Our aim is to teach students the concepts of sustainability outside of the classroom walls by providing opportunities for students to have experiences with nature in a living environment.
