"To inspire a deep appreciation for natural resources, community, and the arts through hands-on outdoor education."
The Klamath Outdoor Science School (KOSS) is a 501(C)3 non-profit organization created in 2004 from a grassroots effort by local teachers, parents, agency personnel, and other citizens in Southern Oregon. We are dedicated to providing students with an exciting and unique experience in a natural setting that inspires learning through exploration and instills an appreciation for the unique resources of the region.
We believe every student should have the opportunity to attend residential outdoor school at least once in his or her school career. Past experience indicates that those who attend outdoor school achieve a level of emotional investment, personal growth, relationship building, and an intensity of learning that was very difficult to achieve in a regular school environment or on single day field trips.
