• Earthkeepers™ allows fourth grade students to understand four life science concepts: energy flow, cycles, interrelationships and change (3 days).
• Sunship Earth™ for fifth graders, focuses on seven life science concepts and offers a strong sense of community (5 days and 4 nights, adding community, diversity and adaptation concepts).
• Sunship III™ for seventh graders deepens life science understanding and focuses on implications of decisions that affect their personal lives and their communities (3 days and 2 nights).
Each program has an engaging framework guiding children from one experience to the next. For instance, during Earthkeepers, participants earn K.E.Y.S. which symbolize each step of their experience. While at the outdoor classroom, participants earn their K and E (Knowledge and Experience) keys, while back in the classroom they earn their Y and S (Yourself and Sharing) keys.
