Who We Are
Friends of Outdoor School is the key connection between Outdoor School and the larger community of individuals, businesses, nonprofit organizations, and government agencies that support Outdoor School programming.
NEW: Oregon Outdoor School Program
In 2016, Oregon voters passed Ballot Measure 99, authorizing funds from the state lottery to provide all 5th or 6th grade students in Oregon access to a week of Outdoor School.
Impacts on Kids
For many children, ODS is their very first experience hiking in a forest, getting their feet wet in a stream or exploring sea life along a sandy beach.
