Miami Country Day School is a college preparatory learning community committed to educating the whole child. Through the core values of honor, respect, wisdom and compassion, we prepare students to be lifelong learners. We inspire our children to develop their intellectual, physical, aesthetic, social, emotional and spiritual potentials by valuing every student, every day. At our day camp, we support this growth with learning through play, adventure, and the formation of lifelong skills and friendships.

COEP (Comprehensive Outdoor Education Program) will challenge students in three major areas: academic skills, outdoor and physical tasks, and individual and group leadership development. The goals and expectations of COEP are to complement and enhance traditional education by offering hands-on experience in life skills that will provide the student necessary tools to meet the challenges of the 21st century. COEP is based on implementing and combing three core areas of development during a school year, using a daily standard class schedule. The curriculum utilizes areas including camping and backpacking skills, orienteering (using a compass), first aid, and survival skills. Sub-areas are local, state and national history with an emphasis on recreational land usage, environmental and ecological issues, zoological and botanical studies, journal writing and development of individual interests in related areas, like literature, art of photography. COEP is a year-long course developing field experience through weekend trips that actively develop individual and group skills. The major objective of COEP is to develop and enhance leadership, teamwork, and individual goals.
