About Us

The Science & Outdoor Education School at Pathfinder Ranch provides safe, fun, and challenging learning experiences that build a sense of respect for the natural world, self, and others. We aim to inspire students to use their knowledge, skills, and experiences to make a positive difference in their home communities.

The Science & Outdoor Education Program began in the 1970’s and has since developed into a premier school of its kind in southern California. Close cooperation and coordination with schools ensures a high quality program year after year.

We offer a wide variety of both academic and recreational courses to public and private schools, primarily targeted at grades 5 & 6. We believe this combination allows for a broader learning base in both academic and social skills. We provide challenging courses and activities, allowing students to achieve success and build self-esteem. Pathfinder Ranch provides a unique opportunity for students and teachers to get to know one another and learn to work as a cohesive team.
