"I saw ODS as my own ticket to personal growth and
spiritual wealth, but when I got back I realized that I had gained much
more. At the end of the week, I decided to seriously look in to
teaching as an option for a college focus. I learned so much about
myself after I went to ODS."

We’re excited to share that the movement to restore outdoor education throughout Oregon is building incredible momentum!
Outdoor School has been an Oregon tradition for over 50 years—yet today less than half of our students have the opportunity to participate in this meaningful, rigorous, place-based science education.
That’s why we’ve formed the Oregon Outdoor Education Coalition, a partnership between Friends of ODS, the Gray Family Foundation, Metropolitan Group and others who are committed to creating a strong, cohesive voice for Oregon outdoor education.
We’re focused on securing state funding for afull week of Outdoor School for every Oregon sixth grade student.
