Great Basin Outdoor School (GBOS) programs immerse students in day trips and multi-day overnight ecology camps in spectacular natural settings on Nevada’s shoreline of Lake Tahoe and other local sites. Students hike, snowshoe, learn local ecology with hands-on standards-based activities, and volunteer on conservation projects. Lessons build healthy habits, social and academic skills, and a connection to community and the natural world. Teachers receive STEM training and re-certification 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.

With your help we can share high-quality outdoor experiences with under-served Nevada students.
