Residential Outdoor Science School (ROSS)

Experience hands-on science education in the beauty of the redwoods, at the beach, or in sierra pine forests.  Students explore and discover the concepts of Energy, Cycles, Change, Adaptations, Communities, Interdependence and Diversity through exciting field study activities on the trail, group building initiatives, fun songs, active games and living together in a community. Curriculum is based on California Science Standards.

California Living History

Yeee-ha!  Journey through California’s Gold Rush and become a greenhorn as you learn about native peoples, our environment, the Gold Rush and our natural resources through the eyes of Native Americans, immigrants, pioneers and prospectors.  Students will participate in activities such as ethnobotany hikes, Native American studies on the trail, pioneer crafts, historic activities, campfires and science / natural history activities as well as living in a community.  Curriculum is based on California History-Social Science Standards.

WOLF PACC Leadership/Teambulding

Personal Awareness.  Community.  Commitment.  Participants discover keys to successful communication, responsibility, and personal growth through unique challenges and intiatives that summon personal awareness and persistence in a beautiful outdoor retreat or camp-style setting.  While hiking on trails, field study activities involve mental and physical challenges, learning about positive choices, cooperation and respect, as well as science and natural history lessons inspired by the outdoor surroundings.

"In these days of standards based education, the naturalists at WOLF school remember that, along with the facts, there should also be joy in the scientific process.  They instill in their students an appreciation for close observation and an understaning of global issues.  Best of all, they make us feel as if we are the first ones to walk a creek or stand under a redwood;  they make each experience new and exciting."  
 ~ Helen Shamble, Teacher at Easterbrook Discovery School, San Jose
