Klamath Outdoor Science School

Information about KOSS

The director and our naturalists are well trained and skilled at providing a successful learning experience. 


Safety is our first priority here at KOSS. Our staff is equipped to deal with first aid emergencies. Staff members are required to have current first-aid and CPR training.

Cell phone service at camp is spotty.  We have found that communications from parents actually tend to cause, not relieve, homesickness, so calls are discouraged.  In case of emergency, please call (541) 660-4222 to reach our director.

Health Information:
To ensure the best experience for your child please fill out your child’s health questionnaire as thoroughly as possible and return it to us at least one week before camp so we have time to prepare for your child's health needs.

Behavior Expectations:
KOSS participants are expected to behave responsibly and observe the same rules as they do at school. While this is a camp experience, students are still responsible for achieving academic goals through lessons and activities. For this reason, students, parents, teachers, and mentors are required to know and adhere to the Behavior Expectations and Rules/Policies in the Teacher Packet.

Tasty, healthy, kid-friendly food is prepared by our certified KOSS cooking staff. Students eat in a family style setting. We accommodate special diets and food allergies when notified in advance. Students are given snacks daily so they do not need to bring candy or gum. Don’t forget to bring your lunch for the first day.

If you have any other questions, please feel free to contact us!
