Outdoor Ed

Each year Roosevelt 5th Grade students go away for a week of Outdoor Education.  San Mateo County Office of Education, in cooperation with local schools and the San Francisco YMCA Camp at Jones Gulch, conducts our award-winning environmental education program.

During a week at Outdoor Education, students learn about the natural world, explore the forest and beach ecosystems, and work together as a community. Each year, over 5,000 students and hundreds of teachers and cabin leaders join our enthusiastic staff to experience the magic of nature. Roosevelt 5th graders often list this experience as their favorite memory of their elementary school career.
