Overnight Program Professional Development: Biscayne Expedition - November 10-11, 2012
Biscayne Expedition is a standards-based, overnight camping program that is offered December-March. Classes of 25, plus teachers and chaperones, are transported to Elliott Key to take advantage of one of nature's outdoor classrooms. While a National Park Ranger will help to facilitate your class's visit and will present programs, you, the teacher, and your chaperones are the driving force behind Biscayne Expedition. Teachers must register for and attend a MANDATORY, two day teacher's workshop. During this free workshop, teachers will be transported by boat to Elliott Key and will participate in every aspect of camp that your students will encounter. Teachers will participate in the standards based programs that are presented to your students, as well as cook camp food and sleep in tents. (If you have participated in a Biscayne Expedition Teacher's Workshop within the last two years, you do not need to attend another to bring your students out this school year.) The Teacher Workshop will be conducted November 10-11, 2012.
