• 5th Grade Trip Coordinator's Page

    For Coordinator's Use

    This page is intended for teachers who will be attending the overnight the Schmidt Center Outdoor experience trip. Schools will typically stay at the Villages or the Orme school building. 

    Teachers are required to instruct for five of the six activities offered at the Schmidt Center: Dropping in on Deer, Orienteering, Problem Solving, Woodland Ecology (Nature Hike), and Team Building.  Our sixth activity, Stream Ecology, will be taught by a staff member from the Center.  The new and improved Confidence Course is open but schools may only use it with the appropriately trained staff members.  Contact Travis Long for more information Confidence Course at travis.long@pgcps.org. 

    Please review the activity booklet and associated video for the lesson you have been charged with teaching before attending the field trip.  There is very little time to review the activities once you arrive at the Schmidt Center .
