Beginning June 1, 2019, WOLF School (Web of Life Field School) will partner with Camp Arroyo to provide Bay Area students and teachers with even more excellent outdoor environmental education and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) opportunities. WOLF School, a well-known outdoor school where classroom teachers take their students to experience the wonders of Science Camp and hands-on learning, is celebrating 30 years of delivering high quality science camp programs to youth. In addition, WOLF School is beginning a new partnership with Camp Arroyo, part of the East Bay Regional Park District located in Livermore, CA.

For the last 30 years WOLF School has provided engaging outdoor education experiences to over 4,000 K-12 students and teachers each year at overnight science camps in the California redwoods, near the beach, and in the Sierras. This new partnership will allow WOLF School to continue building Camp Arroyo's traditions as well as reaching more students to fulfill their mission of "building respect, appreciation, and stewardship within the web of life."

“We are looking forward to working with the staff at Camp Arroyo to continue to deliver high quality programs to their students,” said WOLF School Associate Director Desiree Gant. Gant continues, "We've enjoyed working with Camp Arroyo staff in our professional organization, AEOE [California Association for Environmental and Outdoor Education], and we are super excited to work with Camp Arroyo's students and teachers!"

WOLF School believes in the transformative power of outdoor experiences and is committed to designing programs that connect youth with nature, empower individuals, and strengthen communities. Through lessons and activities that make learning fun, WOLF School gives teachers the opportunity to enhance classroom curriculum and gives students that chance to gain knowledge, awareness, and respect for their environmental, their community, and themselves.

From visiting the garden and tasting organic vegetables, to studying aquatic invertebrates at the creek, to participating in the legendary Cresta Blanca hike and learning about California’s early peoples, there is a lot to explore, discover, and learn at WOLF School Camp Arroyo. WOLF School is looking forward to supporting classroom teachers through this new connection and making life-changing experiences at camp for students in Livermore, CA and the San Francisco East Bay Area.
