Marin Horizon’s Experiential Learning Program teaches leadership, teamwork, independence, problem-solving, and care for the environment and our community. The Experiential Learning Program consists of three core elements: outdoor education, service learning, and our buddy program.
The program offers students an opportunity to extend their learning beyond the classroom, practice skills to interact safely with wild spaces, and learn about environmental stewardship.
All students in Kindergarten-8th grade participate in overnight excursions at least once a year. These trips begin in Kindergarten where students camp for one night locally without their parents. Each successive year, students take on new and more challenging excursions where they learn new skills that continually build upon one another, culminating in multi-night back country's trip in upper grades.
