What is Camp Beyond Camp?


Camp Beyond Camp's online  design  eliminates the need for teachers to design lessons that link the outdoor education camp experience to the classroom. 

Our partnership with each camp ensures our courses do not overlap but enhance the camp's lessons.  Students are able to access the camp experience throughout the year as opposed to just a few days.

Access Anywhere

Camp Beyond Camp's mission is to eliminate a drain on school and camp resources.  Our online classes allow students to access our courses on computers, tablets and smart phones.  This means parents can also see the cool things their child experienced at camp.
