Outdoor Education

Catlin Gabel's Outdoor Education Program encourages students to learn more about themselves and the natural world.

Catlin Gabel is launching a multi-year effort to create an integrated outdoor education program for students in preschool through high school. Our goal is to ensure that all students can benefit from the wealth of skills and competencies gained through a robust outdoor education curriculum. Students will explore the outdoors through field trips, grade-level trips, and experiential opportunities. 

We will continue to offer select trips for grades 8-12. Past excursions have included a Smith Rock climbing weekend in Central Oregon, a three-day bike trip from Mt. Hood to the Santiam River, rafting trips on the Deschutes or the White Salmon River, and snowshoe and cross country ski day trips on Mt. Hood. Financial Assistance is available for most trips.
