Trip Overview

Discover the natural wonders of California, from Yosemite’s high peaks to the dramatic Pacific coast, on this program designed for 5th and 6th graders. California Discovery offers a true discovery of a wide-variety of outdoor adventures: students will splash in the waves of the Pacific Ocean during surf lessons, cool off in the American River with a day of whitewater rafting, and explore all that Lake Tahoe has to offer with day hikes, sea kayaking, and geocaching! The students will also enjoy the highlight for many – a 3-day overnight backpacking experience in Yosemite National Park! This section provides students with the opportunity to explore this stunning National Park, famous for its ancient trees, granite cliffs, and waterfalls, while carrying all their supplies on their back for 3 days.

I learned that I am capable and the wilderness can be so fun. This trip changed my perspective of the outdoors and how we need to all take better care of it.
