Next year is shaping up to be a record year for outdoor school at Mount St. Helens! As we focus on serving the students and schools that will benefit the most, we need YOUR help. Nearly 70% of the schools we will serve in the spring of 2023 are high-opportunity gap schools that qualify for financial assistance.

Donors like you are the reason it’s possible for kids to attend outdoor school.

Your gift in support of programs like Volcano Outdoor School for All will provide access to these one-of-a-kind learning opportunities for all kids, regardless of their background or economic status.

Your support today will inspire students to think like scientists and help teachers support their students with new learning opportunities this school year.

$100 provides overnight outdoor school for one student.

$500 creates an engaging multi-lesson unit that supports student academic achievement at the volcano and in the classroom.

$1,000 supports a snowshoe trip for an entire class.

$2,500 helps send an entire class to overnight outdoor school!
