Started in 2000, High Trails is a Big Bear based small business that focuses on residential outdoor education, outdoor ed, science camp, and outdoor science school field trips for Southern California elementary, middle schools, and 5th and 6th grade students.
Each year we host more than 100 schools and 8,000 students as they visit us in the mountains for 3, 4 and 5 weekday programs. To date, we’ve had 125,000 students spend more than 420,000 nights at High Trails. This single minded approach of focusing on only outdoor education has let us refine our program into what is now, we believe, the best natural outdoor science camp experience for your students. If you’re looking for a friendly, innovative and fresh approach to the world of outdoor education, come join us at High Trails Outdoor Science School; your very own dirty classroom.
