YMCA Camp Campbell Outdoor Science School(CCOSS) is a residential outdoor education program for 5th and 6th grade students. We are located within the redwoods of the Santa Cruz Mountains, where we have been serving students for over 25 years. Education comes to life in our unique setting as students experience the thrills of nature through hands-on lessons and activities.

Our CCOSS staff believe that children are the key to the future, and that their understanding of nature and their wise use of our natural resources are essential to the well being of the environment. We strive to develop students' awareness of their role in the environment, as well as their appreciation of the beauty of nature. Our dedication to delivering a hands-on "living" curriculum is based on the California Science Framework and the core concepts of: adaptation, ecosystem, conservation, interdependence, community, niche, cycles, and environmental ethics.

Cabin Leader volunteers will be assigned a group of campers, and will attend field studies during the day and stay overnight in cabins as a group. Meals and lodging accommodations are provided, and all volunteers will receive 87 hours of community service at the end of their week.
