Association for Environmental & Outdoor education


Our mission is to advance the impact of environmental and outdoor education in California

Walden West Santa Clara County Office of Education

Walden West Outdoor School is operated by the Santa Clara County Office of Education. We provide environmental science education for 5th/ 6th graders in a residential camp setting.  Visiting schools come for a 4-5 day program where the students explore an outdoor classroom with experienced naturalists and stay in cabins overnight. We focus on teaching state science standards through hands-on learning while exposing students to new social settings, getting them outside, and providing them with new experiences. Students leave the program with a new sense of personal responsibility, independence and understanding of the natural world around them.To serve more students in our community, Walden West Outdoor School runs school-year programs from two locations – Saratoga and Cupertino.
