Crater Lake is an amazing outdoor laboratory where overwhelming curiosity inspires students to explore nature's cycles. Our team of education rangers provides students and teachers with guided, hands-on activities that facilitate student learning of important concepts outlined in the Next Generation Science Standards. Teachers, students, and chaperones enjoy an active, outdoor adventure that leaves them with life-long memories.
