Through individualized and shared adventures, players explore the environment; learn about sustainability; develop basic survival skills; explore their environment; and delve into academics, assistive technology, art and experiential learning while getting to know their fellow players and uniting as tribes. Rich in creativity and filled with adventure, Brehm Preparatory School’s Summer Program awaits its heroes and heroines. Whether your adventurer is a noble hero, a courageous warrior, a strong leader, a willing follower, or a lone pilgrim, he or she is sure to advance, succeed, learn, grow, and have an unforgettable adventure.
This summer’s journey “Game of Stones” offers adventures in geology and environmental geoscience while uncovering the secrets of beautiful southern Illinois. Each week will feature themes, challenges, and scenarios based on the geology and environmental geoscience experience opportunities in this abundant area such as exploring waterfalls, creeks, and rock formations that have been shaped natural processes over time. Together we will unlock their mysteries, by enjoying student-centered quests and challenges in a safe and guided environment that encourages active and engaged learning. We invite you to help us unlock and explore the great mysteries of Earth in this year’s Summer Scenarios: Self-Reliance.
