During each year at BMS, students take part in a special program away from campus that is related to their academic course work. These experiences are designed to be enriching and address the needs of the whole child
7th Grade - Glen Helen Outdoor Education Center
Bexley seventh graders’ outdoor education trip is an annual tradition of over 50 years. Outdoor education
gives students a chance to connect what they have been learning in the classroom with hands-on experiences. Through inquiry-based methods, students gather information, draw conclusions, and then evaluate their conclusions.
Students spend three days and two nights at Glen Helen Outdoor Education Center in Yellow Springs, Ohio. This is a “technology free” trip where students are given a chance to fully engage in the experience. A parent meeting held in advance of the trip fully explains the program.
