Camping-Based Overnight Programs
KSS camping-based overnight field trips are essentially the same great outdoor and environmental education programs as our cabin-based overnight programs except students sleep in tents rather than in our dorms. Keystone Science School provides all of the necessary camping and kitchen gear and students only need to arrive with their sleeping bag, pillow, and clothes of the program. All meals, instruction, and lodging are covered within the program costs. Each program location has its own unique benefits and is typically chosen by a teacher based on their curriculum goals, group size, and selected season.
Please note that each program is different and we accommodate a variety of program durations.
