OVS middle and high school students launched the academic year with spectacular fall camping trips to three National Parks – Channel Islands, Sequoia, and Kings Canyon – as well as Rock Creek campground in the Eastern Sierras and Montana de Oro state park on the Central Coast.
They kayaked sea caves, waded in mountain streams, bathed in hot springs, roasted marshmallows, performed restoration work, hiked, snorkeled, explored and developed new friendships. See photos from the middle and high school trips in the Images of OVS gallery.
At OVS, we strive to develop the intellectual and personal growth of all of our students – and Outdoor Education is a core part of that experience. The Outdoor Education program on both campuses introduces students, grades K-12, to the stunning mountains, canyons, deserts, and beaches in the West, while teaching students how to respect and care for our fragile environment. Visit the outdoor education page to see the list of upcoming 2017-2018 outdoor trips and offerings of weekend adventures.
This week, OVS elementary students will return from three days at three coastal destinations for their fall camping trips.
