High Tech Elementary is connecting students ranging in age from 5 to 12 and their families in overnight, full-day, and virtual hiking, biking, camping, and environmental stewardship outings at local state parks. Students are introduced to the outdoors and learn how to swim, rock climb, hike, surf, kayak, and more.
"Through funding from the California State Parks Foundation, we hope to engage the next generation of outdoor leaders and advocates through playing, learning, serving, and sharing in our local State Parks. We know as California citizens it is our responsibility to protect the places where we play and the California State Parks Foundation has now empowered us to do so."
