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.
