Camp Cispus outdoor school in action

Camp Cispus Outdoor School

Each spring, students travel to rural Lewis County for three days of outdoor education at the Cispus Learning Center. Activities include forestry, hiking, wildlife and salmon education, and a challenge course, along with many other traditional camp activities.


Reserved for fifth grade students only, this experience provided by the Olympia School District is very much looked forward to as a rite of passage for the school's oldest children.
