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 students will explore an outdoor classroom with experienced naturalists and stay in cabins overnight. We teach Next Generation Science Standards for California Public Schools (CA NGSS) through hands-on learning while exposing students to new social settings, exploring different environments, and enrichment experiences. Students leave the program with a new sense of personal responsibility, independence and understanding of the natural world around them.

  • 4- and 5-day programs
  • At this time, each cabin group will be their own cohort. This means each cabin group will also be a field class. For example, the female students in the Coyotes cabin could be students from different classrooms but they will not mix with other cabin groups during the week. The Coyotes cabin group will be their own field class, and only participate in activities together.
  • High school and college-age volunteer Cabin Leaders.
