Winter Is Here!

Get your students out of the stuffy classroom this winter and outside in the brisk, fresh Tahoe air! We're signing up classes GBOS Winter NOW for our Winter Science Camp Sessions. Great Basin Outdoor School enriches your students with Earth and Life Sciences, teambuilding and discussion of current local issues. Our winter camps offer snowshoeing; winter safety; plant and animal adaptations; watershed and snowpack studies, and much more. Winter overnight sessions can be either 2 or 3 days long, but we also offer SnowSchool, our one-day snowshoeing trips to best suit your needs. Please see our fun 6-minute video, more info with teacher and student quotes, and our teacher's registration form for more information on all our winter trips.
