Northwest Outdoor Science School

Northwest Outdoor Science School contributes to the development of environmental literacy and responsible citizenship, provides hands-on learning experiences that are integrated with local school curricula, and promotes learning about, and appreciation for, the natural world.

Curriculum is based on the standards set by Oregon's Education Act for the 21st Century. 

Students are exposed to careers in science and natural resource management.  They participate in real scientific research through data collection and analysis.

Students also build community while at our program, as they live together in cabin groups and participate in a myriad of activities in those cabin groups, such as duties, games, team-builders, skits and songs.
