Rock Climbing (3rd-8th grade)
Students learn the basics of rock climbing and adventure element safety as they scale our 40ft climbing tower. Additionally, they will discuss and carry out real world applications of goal-setting, stepping out of your comfort zone, the power of encouragement and in trusting others.
Team Building & Leadership (3rd-8th grade)
Start your school-year off by building confidence, teamwork and strong relationships among your students with this track. Students learn how to use critical thinking to solve real-world problems, how to communicate effectively and build leadership qualities that will last a lifetime.
Archery (3rd-8th grade)
An activity that dates back to the Stone Age, we offer archery instruction and the opportunity for students to learn the basics of this unique skill and sport. See your students gain confidence as they learn about the history of archery and the proper techniques for improving their abilities.
Wilderness Survival (3rd-8th grade)
There's no better setting than our National Forest to learn about the tenets of wilderness survival. Students will practice survival techniques such as water collection, shelter building, fire starting, navigation, and foraging strategies. Note: This course has a great deal of content, so please indicate which topical areas you'd like our Naturalists to focus on.
Ecosystems (3rd-6th grade)
Being situated in the heart of the San Bernardino National Forest allows us to offer students a close-up look at the diversity of ecosystems that coexist here. Through discussions about environmental stewardship, interdependence, and the fascinating system of checks and balances that govern ecosystems students will walk away with a newfound appreciation for the natural beauty and landscapes around them.
Producers (3rd-6th grade)
Tree ID, anatomy, seed dispersal...oh my! These topics and many more will have your students excited to share what they've learned about the impressive trees that call our forest their home. Students will get a chance to meet our resident Cedar-Sequoia hybrid: the Tarzan Tree, and even collect biofacts to take home and show to friends and family.
