WOW! Another exciting year is underway at Ebenezer ALIVE! From September thru May, Many school groups from Georgia, Florida, Alabama, North and South Carolina have learned “lifelong skills” during the Ebenezer ALIVE! Education Program.
The New Ebenezer Retreat Center Staff is excited about the new program opportunities for the school groups. The EA Staff continually strives to not only maintain our excellent program at high standards but to improve and move forward.
(Note: The amenities and activities in this video are specific to Ebenezer Alive! only.)
Ebenezer ALIVE! Education Program, an extension of the classroom, is a “hands-on” enriching educational program for students fourth grade and up that will make an impact not only on the lives of the students, but on the teachers and leaders as well.
While our staff and program facilitators are responsible for teaching and guiding the students through classes/tours, supervision and participation from teachers and/or parents is required.
Each school group has a customized program that is designed to provide many opportunities during 3 days-2 nights or longer, which includes:
History/Heritage: Experience life in colonial Georgia! Learn about American Revolution and folk-life skills though its music, costumed storytellers, archeological digs, artifacts’ education, Indian lore, and a troop encampment.
Character Education: Development of character traits such as: The Creator; family; respect for self and others; manners; our environment; citizenship; our great nation.
Nature/Environmental Sciences: Appreciate the Earth, ocean ecology, walking nature trails through the forest, farmland and wetlands, water quality, fishing in a pond, and understanding Wildlife.
Our Program Objectives:
- Develop knowledge and appreciation for U. S. History.
- Increase knowledge and appreciation for the natural environment.
- Provide experiences in the development of positive character traits.
- Expand and positively support schools as a classroom extension by providing “hands-on” experiences in a natural setting for learning and growth.
- Develop positive relationships between teachers, students, and families.
- Encourage wholesome recreation in an unspoiled environment.
Cost: Per person includes: lodging, meals, instruction, and educational packet. Side trips offsite from the New Ebenezer Retreat will pose additional costs. Your group is required to provide transportation to off-center site activities.
Please call for reservations as soon as possible.
We are looking forward to your school group “Discovering the Joy and Excitement of Learning” by participating in our Ebenezer ALIVE! Education Program.
