It’s hard to care about conserving the environment if you’ve never had a chance to experience its wonders. With that in mind, we created Camp PSOS, which exposes underprivileged and inner city youth to the wetlands and wilderness of California. Using fun, hands-on projects, we hope to not only engage campers on environmental issues, but to instill in them the desire to fight for positive environmental change.

Camp PSOS is administered by Inside the Outdoors, an organization with nearly 40 years of experience empowering students, teachers and communities to connect with the nature. Through storytelling and live animal and science labs, they bring science concepts to life and serve over 125,000 California students each year.
