Fostering independence. Building friendships. Developing an appreciation and respect for the environment. These are all the hallmarks of an OVS education and perhaps nowhere are they better exemplified, or experienced, than in our Outdoor Education program. Last week, new and returning students in grades 9-12 participated in trips to Santa Cruz Island, Santa Rosa Island, Montana De Oro State Park, Sycamore Canyon Campground, and Pine Mountain.
More than 130 students and teachers divided into five groups, mixed by grade, to hike, kayak, swim, explore, ride mountain bikes, cook s’mores and just hang out together to build closer ties as a community.
We look forward to sharing photos from these trips in the days ahead. Middle and Elementary camp trips are coming up, so get your gear! Check the pack lists on the Resources page.
