Our Mission

To ignite children's passion for learning and foster cooperation, respect, and responsibility through hands-on discovery in the outdoor classroom.

At Great Basin Outdoor School...

... students are immersed 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.  Teachers get professional development courses and young adults get leadership training and experience.  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.
