More than 1,000 adults and children took part in the Outdoor Education Program sponsored by the Harford Glen. The Outdoor Education Program was planned as a classroom in the outdoors. This program was the most extensive program being carried out in Maryland to date. Sixth-grade classes from the county's schools attended the Fresh Air Camp during the month of May. Each class spent five days at the Harford Glen site. During their five day stay, the students studied arts and crafts, language arts, conservation, orienteering, mathematics and natural science. They also learned to work with compasses, planted trees, took nature hikes, learned gun safety through actual practice and tried fishing.
