Olivet College to partner with Sherman Lake YMCA Outdoor Center
Apr 22, 2007

Olivet College and Sherman Lake YMCA Outdoor Center have formed a partnership that will offer a unique educational setting for Olivets student-teachers during their final semester at the college. The pilot program will begin this fall, as student-teachers will attend a four-day Integrated Education Training program held at Sherman Lake YMCA, located in Augusta. This program will run from Monday, Aug. 27 to Thursday, Aug. 30.

Along with this initial four-day program, student-teachers will also take part in a learning session at Sherman Lake that will last up to four consecutive weeks of the semester.

During this time, student-teachers will deliver lessons that correspond with their major to camp participants. They will also work directly with students in teaching classroom management skills to include routines and procedures.

Partnering Sherman Lake and Olivet College is a perfect match, said Tom Sampson, Ph.D., chair of the Education Department. Sherman Lakes cornerstones include honesty, caring, respect and responsibility. These closely tie in with The Olivet College Compact, which has a responsibility-based theme.
