Outdoor Science School

Natural science and Environmental Education topics are taught from a stewardship perspective. Subjects included are from the disciplines of biology, geology, astronomy, zoology, botany, ecology, conservation, nature study, and outdoor recreation skills.

Genesis Account curriculum is designed to reinforce science concepts learned at school through experiential education, since studying the natural environment cannot always occur within the classroom setting. Students can increase their knowledge of the Creator and His handiwork through directly observing and exploring the outdoors.

Students are provided with a working manual, which is their tool for learning, to apply the concepts that they have been taught by collecting specimens, conducting experiments and recording observations. The curriculum is designed for grades five through eight, utilizing observation, classification, investigation and analytical skills, as seen in the overviews below.

Program Overview

What is different at The Oaks?

The Oaks has several distinctive attributes which set us apart from most other educational camp programs:

  • Our facilities are very modern and comfortable. Most buildings are less than 15 years old.
  • We are in a unique location which allows us quick access to special spots in the Angeles National Forest and high desert region.
  • Our food service is generous and delicious. We offer all you can eat food including a fresh salad bar (and cappuccino, coffee service for adults).
  • We seek to integrate team building and adventure experiences with the Outdoor Education program so your student can grow not only in their knowledge of their creator and his creation, but in fellowship as a class.
  • Our schedules tend to be highly structured and fast paced with very little free time so the students don't get bored.
  • Our classes are interactive and are almost never in the sitting position or in lecture format.
  • We plan our program to meet your needs and intended learning objectives.
