Book your class now for our Fall Science Camp Session with Great Basin Outdoor School at Lake Tahoe! We have our 4-day, 3-night schedules available starting in September 2014. We also have special 2-day, 1-night SAMPLER FIELD TRIPS for select weeks. Hurry, because our availabilities are limited and they're filling up fast! 

"I was especially happy that we came up in the fall. It was a wonderful way to start off the year. The students are in a different mind-set about school, are able to focus on their work, and were able to get to know their classmates in a way that they couldn't before... I see them working well together in groups and showing good leadership and responsibility. We have become a team! I feel very strongly that this program is most beneficial in the fall as the team-building aspect of the program is most noticeable. We are anxious to come again next year!"
