Programs & Activities
Overnight: We invite you to bring your students to an overnight experience for one, two, three, or four nights! During your overnight stay, experience the full range of hands-on STEM-based lessons as well as adventure activities that will challenge and encourage students. When you book an overnight stay, our facility opens up to include horseback riding, canoeing, and the challenge course.
Day Trip: If a day trip is more suitable for your students, feel free to pack a lunch or have our staff prepare one for you! The lessons and activities for a day trip are limited to our core lessons to ensure your students make the most of their day.
The Outdoor Education Center at Camp Olympia has been the home of outdoor education for over 40 years. We started as a program by passionate teachers from Houston ISD who wanted to make a lasting impact in the lives of students, and today that tradition is carried on by teachers who want to inspire the next generation of teachers and students. Our TEKS-aligned curriculum has been used to start and enhance outdoor ed centers around the state and even the country. We invite students to create meaning from their experience without lecturing or sitting still. Students will get dirty, they will explore, they will find answers to their questions. Our curriculum is written for our facility to bring the surrounding area to life.
