Our goal is to provide a wonderful science camp experience for your students and a stress free experience for you, the hard working teachers! Visiting teachers have a very flexible role in our program; we need your help supervising during meals and in the case a student becomes ill and cannot participate in the program. For the rest of camp you are encouraged to interact with the students, watch classes, catch up on school work, and, like the students themselves, just enjoy your time in the fresh air.
Our program philosophy:
The Aspen Creek Outdoor School is an environmental program where students learn about:
- The natural world - Having an understanding of and a sense of wonder about nature inspires environmental responsibility.
- Human impact on the environment - Human actions can have positive impacts on natural ecosystems
- Ourselves and our relationships with others – Learning to live and work in a community are important life skills

What teachers are saying about Chapel Rock and the Aspen Creek Outdoor School:
"For the past four years, I have taken my 6th grade students to Chapel Rock for our science camp field trip. We spend three days and two nights exploring nature and building teamwork through challenge courses designed by their staff. The site easily accommodates our group of an average 130 students and chaperones in their well kept lodges, meeting halls and dining room.
The staff at Chapel Rock is first class. They willingly accommodate the needs of each student through support and encouragement in all courses taught. This includes the challenge course, rock wall/zip line, nature hikes, and owl pellets. Chapel Rock has a variety of courses to choose from in order design an academic field trip that aligns to your curriculum.
I highly recommend Chapel Rock for your field trip needs, as my students and I have had very positive experiences with the staff and campground."
