The 6th Grade Camp you remember.

In a whole new light.

Their first time away from home. Sleeping in a cabin with 72 friends – old and new. Day hikes. Night hikes. Campfires. Seeing wild deer, elk, turkey…even a bobcat! Many inner city kids have never seen the wilderness in person before.

SELF-SUFFICIENCY

Campers learn not just science, but also how to get along without mom and dad.

SCIENCE FROM THE SOURCE

No textbooks here. Touch it, smell it, sketch it, see if it crawls away under its own power.

ALL MEALS PROVIDED

Have you ever seen 400 6th graders eat 1,200 pancakes?  It’s impressive.

CUYAMACA RANCHO STATE PARK

With more than 24,000 acres and 100 miles of trails, it’s the perfect place for kids to learn science, hands-on.

“Our community needed a jumpstart to get to camp.
OEF’s support was just what we needed!”

Adventure begins at the foot of a trail.

Not quite ready to make a monthly commitment? How about a one time gift. $360 sends two kids to camp. $180 sends one. But anything you can give is important.
