The environmental education program at Summit View allows students the opportunity to experience the vast and varied physical environment of Southern California. Each grade level from fifth grade through senior year participates in one environmental education trip per school year. The programs are designed to provide an appropriate physical challenge for our students as they safely experience the unpredictability of the great outdoors. The outdoor programs ensure that students apply classroom lessons and personal skills to navigate the demands of camping, hiking, and preparing meals. With the guidance of trained naturalists and teacher supervision, students have real-life lessons in breathtaking settings. Recent trips have included Catalina Island, Joshua Tree National Forest, and the Colorado River. These trips forge and strengthen relationships between classmates and create memories that last a lifetime.
