4-H TRACKERS is Kettunen Center’s environmental and outdoor education program designed for youth ages 5-12 or K-6th grades. The program offers hands-on, experiential-based education for getting children outside to learn about science and engaged in outdoor learning experiences. The science activities are designed to meet the Michigan Department of Education Science Grade Level Content Expectations (GLCEs).
The program is a cooperative effort, planned and implemented by teachers and Kettunen Center program staff. The program is structured to assist classroom teachers in providing quality learning experiences and educational content in an outdoor learning environment.
4-H TRACKERS activities are great options for family retreats and to help non-formal youth educators of 4-H clubs, church groups and other youth groups provide environmental and outdoor education learning experiences for youth during planned weekend and summer group activities. The program offers learning experiences in science, natural history, outdoor recreation, team building and life skills.
