0UTDOOR SCIENCE CAMP PROGRAMS

Southern California's premier Outdoor Science Camp

The CODES program specializes in the CA Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) curriculum.

 

Our Naturalists use lecture presentation, gamification, experimentation, and reflection to create experiential learning opportunities that are specifically tailored to challenge your students while also promoting self-confidence and science literacy in topics that complement their current school curriculum.

 

Although we do have a set schedule and courses based on the students’ grade level, we love to hear about the topics schools have been focusing on with their students or those you would like us to reinforce.

OUR OUTDOOR ED CLASSES 

ECOSYSTEMS

This course teaches students the fundamentals of ecology. Topics like Abiotic and Biotic factors, Consumers, Producers, Decomposers and Interdependence within an ECOSYSTEM are only a few of the topics that come to life through hands-on demonstrations in this course.

ROCK WALL

& LOW ROPES

Students will experience this two-component class that is made of team-building challenges and a high ropes course offering them the chance to climb to the top of our 40ft Rock Wall. The only way to reach a goal is to set one, and that is exactly what this class will impress upon students: the principles of goal-setting; encouragement; and the application of the scientific method as a problem-solving tool.

PRODUCERS

They may be at the bottom of the food chain, but they are at the top of the list when it comes to importance; PRODUCERS! In this class, students will go in depth into topics like photosynthesis, plant anatomy, native plant identification, dendrochronology, the bark beetle blight, and so much more.

CONSUMERS

A fan favorite of students and teachers alike, this course will lead students through curriculum that covers three major fields of zoology: herpetology, mammalogy, and ornithology. Using biofacts, personal exploration assignments, and meet and greets with our live animal collection, students will come away with a stronger understanding of animal specialization, adaptations, classification, identification, and what it means to be an environmental steward.

NIGHT HIKE

Students will move outside of their comfort zone and experience how the great outdoors changes once the sun goes down. This class will have students using their five basic senses in ways that will unveil their body's amazing abilities that can only be truly appreciated when the lights are out. Covering topics such as the mechanics of the eye and night vision, nocturnal animals and their adaptations, triboluminescence, astronomy, and courage, this class is one that is rarely forgotten.

WATERSHED

More than just highs and lows, this course takes a cumulative look back at all that the students have accomplished and participated in at camp. Driven by inquiry, personal reflection, and real-life application, students translate their newly acquired knowledge and character lessons into practical applications for when they go back down the mountain.

EXTENDED HIKE

On our Extended Hike, a crowd favorite, students depart on a 6 hr exploratory hike through the San Bernardino National Forest. Encountering all 4 of the ecosystems found at Mile High Pines, students will stop to admire the views of the San Gorgonio mountain range, cross over the rippling tributary that is Frog Creek and have a picnic lunch on the banks of the man-made wonder, Jenks Lake. If your camp date is in May - October, you are in for a treat as canoes and kayaks are available for use on the lake for our schools during these months only!

WILDERNESS SURVIVAL

Students will enter the San Bernardino National Forest as wary campers and exit as new survivalists. Through friendly competition, student teams will elect a leader and compete to stay alive (under the watchful eyes of our Naturalists) by building shelters, procuring food and water, creating fire, and orienteering. This class teaches students the techniques and best practices of wilderness survival as well as develops students’ critical thinking skills while promoting cooperation and leadership in a (hypothetical) crisis.

REVIEW CLASS

  More than just highs and lows, this course takes a cumulative look back at all that the students have accomplished and participated in at camp. Driven by inquiry, personal reflection, and real-life application, students translate their newly acquired knowledge and character lessons into practical applications for when they go back down the mountain.
