YMCA Camp Campbell Outdoor Science School



Education comes to life at our Camp Campbell Outdoor Science School (CCOSS) where 5th and 6th grade students experience the thrills of nature through hands-on lessons and activities. We foster a love for nature and the outdoors, and the development of attitudes and practices that build character and awareness for the environment—all amidst the fun of campfires, songs, and meaningful relationships.

At Camp Campbell Outdoor Science School, students will:

  • Experience a hands-on “living” curriculum in an outdoor setting
  • Develop an understanding of their role in the environment
  • Gain independence as they spend 4 days and 3 nights away from home in an atmosphere committed to building healthy youth through asset development.
  • Learn responsibility as they take care of themselves and their belongings
  • Gain respect for others as they share a living space with fellow students
Students also participate in traditional camp activities like sing-a-longs, bouldering/climbing wall, skit nights, arts & crafts, group games, BBQs, and science-based night hikes.
