Mission Statement

The Mission of the Great Basin Outdoor School is

to ignite children's passion for learning and foster cooperation, respect and responsibility through hands-on discovery in the outdoor classroom.

Description

Great Basin Outdoor School programs immerse students in multi-day overnight ecology camps in spectacular natural settings on Nevada’s shoreline of Lake Tahoe. Activities meet state curriculum standards in many subjects, especially science. Students hike, snowshoe, learn local ecology with hands-on activities, and do environmental projects to help keep Tahoe blue and reduce fire danger in theTahoeBasin. Great BasinOutdoorSchooloperates exclusively inNevadaand has served thousands ofNevadachildren as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit since 1998.

Corporate sponsorship and individual support will keep the program affordable and provide fee reductions and scholarships for children in need. Please share our mission to serve Nevadachildren.
