Sparking Joy and SEL Growth through Outdoor Play

Social-emotional learning (SEL) through outdoor play offers a dynamic and engaging approach for youth to develop crucial life skills. Through collaborative play and teamwork, youth enhance their communication and problem-solving skills and learn valuable lessons about the world and themselves.

At Voyageur Environmental Center, the freedom and stimulation of the natural environment inspires creativity and imagination, fostering cognitive flexibility and innovative thinking – all while having fun with peers! Youth play games like “gaga ball” and foursquare in teams or work as a large group to complete waterfront and forest activities.
