Overnight Outdoor Learning

Sierra Nevada Journeys Outdoor school

Overnight Outdoor Learning Program is an outstanding outdoor school program. Taught by experiential educators, the 3-5 day programs are held at our Grizzly Creek Ranch Campus in Portola, CA. All lessons build critical thinking and collaboration skills and include pre- and post- assessments to ensure the highest level of effectiveness and impact.

CUSTOMIZE YOUR CLASSROOM'S outdoor school EXPERIENCE

Sierra Nevada Journeys works with each teacher to develop a customized set of lessons and activities from our standards correlated curriculum. Some of these lessons include engineering, pond ecology, ropes course, forest ecology, astronomy, geology, storytelling and night hikes.

I love seeing students that don’t do so well in the four walls of a classroom excel in an outdoor, hands-on setting. So many students gain confidence on non-academic skills that they are able to take back to the classroom and apply to academic skills.
— Nicole, Washoe County School District Teacher
