Pigeon Point Teachers
Thank you for your interest in Exploring New Horizons Outdoor Schools at Pigeon Point. Exploring New Horizons is a private non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation that conducts residential outdoor education at three facilities. In both programs, teaching is conducted outside and focuses on exploration and appreciation of the natural world.
The Pigeon Point program offers a three-day, two-night field trip to students 3rd-8th grade. Students have the opportunity to experience the elephant seals at Año Nuevo State Reserve, hike in the old growth redwoods at Memorial County Park, and explore the tidepools and sandy beaches of the San Mateo Coast. The program is led by an experienced naturalist staff and parent chaperone volunteers, provided by the school, that help provide additional program support and supervision.
Upon teacher request, programs can be custom tailored to suit the individual educational needs. Please feel free to discuss options regarding curriculum, teaching locations, and any other special requests.
The cost of the program varies annually. Please call to find out the fee for this year’s program. Program fee is charged per student (teachers are free and cabin leaders are at a discounted price). The fee includes instruction by trained naturalists, housing, and all meals except for the first lunch, which students bring. Transportation to and from the program and to and from our teaching locations is provided by the individual groups attending our program. Bus transportation to our teaching locations on the second day can be arranged at an additional cost.
Merchandise (T-shirts, hoodies, and hats) is available for purchase HERE.
