Our Program

Thousand Pines Outdoor Science School offers four and five-day programs where students focus on Next Generation Science Standards in the outdoor classroom of the San Bernardino National Forest.


Our program meets California state standards with excellence while catering to fifth and sixth-grade students from public and private schools. Studies in botany, geology, astronomy, ecology and other lessons are brought to life by experienced staff on our many scenic trails. In addition to academics, students will walk away with greater skills in communication, cooperation, social skills, and self-reliance. Staff lead students with positive reinforcement to assist in team-building activities and encourage some who may be away from home for the first time.
