Dunes Learning Center programs utilize a hands-on, interdisciplinary approach offering outdoor experiences and minds-on discovery to engage a variety of learning styles.
Your learning adventure begins at school with materials and activities provided by Dunes Learning Center. At camp, students explore a classroom without walls where lessons come to life in nature. Follow-up activities allow students to transfer their experiences back into their studies, school and community.
To schedule a parent presentation or a pre-visit activity for your classroom please contact Education Director, Erin Crofton.
