Education Programs

Crow Canyon's experiential education programs foster critical thinking and creative problem solving in students, grades 4–12.

In addition to our school group programs and teen summer camps, we also offer a special summer institute designed to challenge, inspire, and provide essential professional development for teachers.

All our programs are developed in consultation with American Indians.
