Great Basin Outdoor School

Fun, hands-on lessons lead to life changing experiences for children! Experience it for yourself on the shores of Lake Tahoe. Fifth and sixth grade classes build healthy habits, academic and social skills, and a connection to community and the natural world. Children and young adults hike or snowshoe in the area learning local ecology during the multi-day overnight camps. The activities meet curriculum standards while also providing a sense of stewardship towards the surroundings, including reducing fire danger and keeping Lake Tahoe blue. Great Basin Outdoor School operates exclusively in Nevada and has served thousands of children as a 501(c)(3) non-profit since 1998.
