The Klamath Outdoor Science School camp is located inside the Sun Pass State Forest, through a Special Use Permit from the Oregon Department of Forestry (ODF).  

The Oregon Department of Forestry has made significant contributions to the development and operation of the outdoor school and has installed interpretive signs on a loop trail near the camp. 

Sun Pass State Forest is managed for multiple uses including sustainable timber harvest.  The active management surrounding KOSS provides a unique opportunity for students and their families to learn about these sustainable forestry objectives and study their outcomes.

Rodeo's Pizza, at 1215 Main St. in Klamath Falls, is sponsoring KOSS from June-September by donating 10% of sales of its newly-created Ladybug Pizza, with pepperoni, olives, and home-grown basil!  Yum!

Be sure to ask to donate a dollar or two to KOSS by "buying" a ladybug when you make your purchase!

We need your help to complete our amazing facilities. An improved site will lead to an improved environment for your kids to learn (and comfort for chaperones and teachers as well.) Your donation will to help us reach our goals for the construction of a dining hall, kitchen and bathrooms at Sun Pass State Forest.
