QCCC is strongly committed to achieving learning outcomes through quality Outdoor Education experiences. Richard Louv's book Last Child in the Woods describes the onset of nature deficit disorder as children become increasingly disconnected from their natural environment. Our goal is to teach respect and passion for nature through providing positive interaction with the created order in our programs. Our teaching methods are tactile and memorable and focussed on team building and positive relationship building.
