By the time students graduate from SF Day, they have spent nearly a full month sleeping under the stars. Our outdoor education program started in 1985 and has become an integral part of the SF Day experience. All students, from wide-eyed kindergarteners to curious eighth graders, participate in a form of outdoor education. An emphasis is placed on group dynamics while students actively build their knowledge of ecology, geology, history, and environmental issues. We teach our students to develop their own ideas about responsible use of the outdoors and how we can help protect our planet's vital resources. Equipment and funding is available for all students.
