Dorm-Based Overnight Field Trips

Keystone Science School offers two locations for our dorm-based outdoor education programs - Keystone Science School Campus and Tomahawk Ranch. At each location, programs are specifically designed to meet the goals of each participating school and can be a variety of program lengths depending on the chosen adventure activities and curriculum themes. Students only need to bring a sleeping bag, pillow, and clothes for the program and KSS will take care of the rest. All meals, instruction, and lodging are covered within the program costs.

The professional kitchen staff at KSS are experienced in accommodating any dietary restrictions or food allergies our participants might have. We partner with schools and parents in order to completely understand the needs of each individual student and prepare food based on each child’s needs. With each overnight program we serve hot breakfast and dinners and provide students with a sack lunch to be eaten “on trail.” View our typical menu for a 3 day and 2-night program along with the individual ingredients. We encourage teachers and parents to review our menu and the contact us with any questions they may have.
