Mission Statement

The mission of the Walden West Science Center is to immerse students in the world of science and inspire environmental stewardship. Our goals are to: Provide a residential science camp experience for 5th and 6th grade students. Provide a setting that encourages personal growth, emotional maturity and respect for others across all demographic backgrounds.

Description

Walden West Outdoor School is operated by the Santa Clara County Office of Education . We provide environmental science education for 5th and 6th graders in a residential camp setting. Visiting schools come for a 4-5 day program where the students explore an outdoor classroom with experienced naturalists and stay in cabins overnight. We focus on teaching state science standards through hands-on learning while exposing students to new social settings, getting them outside, and providing them with new experiences. Students leave the program with a new sense of personal responsibility, independence and understanding of the natural world around them.
