Bring the classroom outdoors!

Students love Outdoor Education because it's hands-on, engaging, and fun. Fall classes develop positive bonds students and teachers can use all year. Spring classes build bonds they can take into the next school year. The Warm Beach Camp Outdoor Education Program is affordable and custom designed to meet your education goals, including Gen Science Standards.

Warm Beach Camp is located on one of the finest eco-systems in the Northwest for the study of marine estuaries, upland forests, and human impact on natural systems. The beauty of the 278 acre property overlooking Port Susan Bay provides a wholesome environment.
