Outdoor Education

Are you a teacher who's looking for a great way to make your kids' science curriculum come alive? Check out our great Outdoor School program!

We use a curriculum from a company based near Fresno, CA called American Outdoor Schools/Genesis Account, with over 25 years experience in the Outdoor Education field. 

This well-developed curriculum meets California state science standards for 5th-8th grade. They offer a curriculum for both public schools and christian schools.

Ghormley already works with several schools in the Northwest that have been coming to us for years, and we'd be happy to put you in touch with them if you'd like to hear more about someone else's experience!

Here is a sampling of the types of classes we can offer:

  • Wilderness survival
  • Water studies
  • Soil studies
  • Plant/Tree studies
  • Orienteering (Compass)
  • Bird studies
  • Night hike (nocturnal/diurnal animal studies)
  • Astronomy

We can honestly say from experience that a week (or half-week) at Outdoor School will not only be a highlight of your students' year, but for many of them it is an experience they will remember for the rest of their life!
