Thousand Pines Outdoor Science School offers four and five-day programs where students focus on Next Generation Science Standards in the outdoor classroom of the San Bernardino National Forest. Our program meets California state standards with excellence while catering to fifth and sixth-grade students from public and private schools. Studies in botany, geology, astronomy, ecology, and other lessons are brought to life by experienced staff on our many scenic trails. In addition to the academics, students will walk away with greater skills in communication, cooperation, social skills, and self-reliance, having been encouraged through participation in team building activities, and for some, staying away from home multiple nights for the first time.
