Outdoor school gives students the opportunity to discover more about the Columbia River Gorge and its history
A ‘natural’ classroom

Ask a sixth-grader what their favorite aspect of outdoor school is, and a likely response will be the opportunity to get out of the classroom.
And that’s the point.
Outdoor school, aligned with state science standards, is meant to give students a hands-on approach to the natural world they can't get by going online or looking at photos in a textbook.
Students learn through inquiry and practical application by doing hands-on activities.
