Thank you for your interest in supporting

Great Basin Outdoor School!

For over 20 years, Great Basin Outdoor School has been a pillar of outdoor education in the Reno-Tahoe area. Our mission is to ignite children's passion for learning and the outdoors and foster cooperation, respect, and responsibility through hands-on discovery in the outdoor classroom.  Your support is needed to open doors for children in need who are unable to participate without community support and help keep programs affordable for classes.  Share your values. Help connect children with nature and a love of lifelong learning.  Help them build memories, life skills, and healthy habits.  We can’t wait to share heartwarming thank you notes from children and evidence of the difference you make for them.
