Founded in 1926, Clear Creek has the distinction of being the oldest continuously operated outdoor education center in the country. The Skyhook Foundation (www.skyhookfoundation.org) and
Beyond the Bell are collaborating to fund Camp Skyhook at Clear Creek Outdoor Education center. This partnership will ensure that the camp continues providing opportunities to participate in positive and safe field- study settings. Today’s students continue the legacy of environmental stewardship with a focus on science and technology to help conserve and restore nature’s resources for future generations to enjoy.
The Office of Outdoor and Environmental Education proudly welcomes back Point Fermin Marine Science Center in new year-round facilities. High above the Los Angeles Harbor, nestled in the history of
Fort Mac Arthur and the beauty of native gardens, opportunity awaits. A rocky
shoreline, marine rescue centers, and gardens with unobstructed views of
Catalina Island become the classrooms. Students discover strength,
independence and their place in the larger world, one that extends beyond
the boundaries of school and neighborhood.
Our vision is to offer students science-based environmental education programs to create ecological leaders for the future sustainability of life on Earth.
