-Winter 2011 Student

Contact us for dates still available for 2020 season.
Length of program
We offer a 2-day / 1-night program or a 3-day / 2-night program!
What is snow? How are snowflakes formed and how are they different? How are some animals adapted to even the harshest winters? During their time at GBOS, students learn all the answers. They are also able to snowshoe while exploring these questions with hands-on lessons and inquiry-based learning in an outdoor winter classroom! Additionally, they are able to do snow experiments, stargaze and view winter constellations, journal, sing, do skits, and more!
Read What Cold Springs Middle School Had to Say About Us!
During our trip to GBOS
We learned a few things we must confess
Like how fun it is to study planets & lakes
And all the different kinds of snowflakes
We tromped through the snow on some funky shoes
And learned how not to sing the frostbite blues
We know glaciers are big hunks of ice
And little snow tunnels are made by mice
The cabins and food make us cozy and warm
We would have been comfy in that crazy snow storm
We have one more thing we’d like to say to you
And that would be a big THANK YOU!
To all the naturalists –
Pika, Swift, and Buckeye,
Deer Mouse, Nuthatch, and Dragonfly
We would love to stay but have to go
So good luck! Have fun! And enjoy the snow!
