Schools, youth groups, and organizations visit Camp El Tesoro for day or overnight trips for experiential outdoor learning that focuses on environmental education. Students participate in active, hands-on activities including nature hikes, scavenger hunts, team building, low elements challenge course, compass games, canoeing, firebuilding, outdoor cooking, knot tying and more.
Instructors get down and dirty to teach young people about the environment, encouraging students to get an up-close-and-personal study of ecology by actually getting into the creek and examining the creek’s aquatic life.
Camp El Tesoro is a true experiential “laboratory” for outdoor education that allows students to see past their classroom walls and gain a greater appreciation of their natural world. Students in grade K – 12 can benefit from an experience at Camp El Tesoro.
