Providencia’s Outdoor Science School is a one-of-a-kind experience organized by our 5th grade teachers and the Los Angeles County Outdoor Science School (LAOSS). Our 5th grade students, teachers, and parent chaperones spend 4 days and 3 nights in Wrightwood, located in the San Gabriel Mountains north of Los Angeles. Wrightwood is a combination of forests, canyons, and mountains that provide an excellent and diverse outdoor teaching environment. While there, students will “spend 7 hours a day with their Naturalist Group on the trail learning science and outdoor skills, enjoy three meals and two snacks a day…, participate in Evening Programs each night, and sleep surrounded by their schoolmates in cozy cabins.”

    “It was the best experience ever! We got to learn about science and nature. My favorite part of OSS was the night hike, because it was dark under the stars and the moonlight. It was fun and scary at the same time, but more fun.”

    “4 days you will never forget. The time you spend with your child in the wild learning about nature and a little bit about each other is priceless.”
