Studying Nature’s Sketchbook
The NDAA E3 Club encourages students to periodically step away from the hustle and bustle of their academic lives to contemplate the spiritual lessons to be learned through nature’s sketchbook. Students also learn the importance of recharging, reconnecting, and reaffirming their relationship with God in a peaceful environment.
Upper School students are taught wildlife survival skills, study biology in the natural setting, and learn to bond closely with their peers. By hiking, excavating, and camping together, students internalize the fact that God is our refuge and our only safety in any circumstance.
Most importantly, E3 encourages our youths to consider God’s urging to “Be still, and know that I am God” ~Psalms 46:10
