What We Do
We immerse students in multi-day overnight science camps and day field studies in spectacular natural settings on the shore of Lake Tahoe and other local sites.
Students hike, snowshoe, learn local ecology, and more with hands-on, standards-based activities, and volunteer on conservation projects.
Lessons build healthy habits, social and academic skills, and a connection to the community and the natural world. Teachers receive STEM training and professional development credit.
Great Basin Outdoor School operates exclusively in Nevada and has served thousands of children and adults as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit since 1998.
Children in need are included thanks to generous community support.
