Outdoor Education and Environmental Science Field Trips for Schools
Keystone Science School is proud to provide schools with unique overnight field trips that combine Science, Adventure, and Fun! Each outdoor education and environmental education field trip we create is tailored to the goals of each participating school.Located in a high mountain environment outside Denver, our classroom is the forest, streams, and alpine tundra where students can be outside and adventuring.
Our dorm-based field trips are the flagship programs of Keystone Science School where each teacher designs the overnight field trip of their choosing. With each dorm location, students will experience the comforts of home including hot showers, and meals served within an indoor dining hall.
Our camping-based field trips are the same great outdoor and environmental education programs except students sleep in tents rather than in our dorms. You can choose the location based on the available curriculum theme, desired adventure activity, or proximity to your school/Denver International Airport.
“KSS is an experience that cannot be brought into a traditional classroom. This is an opportunity for students to be out up close and personal in nature. Connecting what's learned in the classroom to the real world deepens and enriches the curriculum.”
- Lowry Elementary
“KSS provides a forum for students to truly learn experientially. Many of my students said they wished every day could be like it is at KSS, and I do too. The stewardship combined with experiential ed is transformational!”
- Rocky Mountain Academy of Evergreen
“The combination of learning, class- and team-building activities, outdoor adventure, and down-time in the dorm and on the playing fields was an extremely positive, even transformative experience for our students. I've heard them saying this has been their best school-related experience to date.”
- Polaris Elementary
