Lessons & Activities

Guess My Feeling

Students will get a “feeling” card taped to their backs and they must help each other figure out what their “feeling” is by portraying it.

What is Culture?

Students discuss and brainstorm what it is that makes a culture.


The class is separated in two groups and each group is given a list of attributes which they must learn and act. Each culture must then try to figure out the attributes of the other culture by observing and integrating with the other culture.

What People Are Saying

I loved my experience at Pali. In my time as an instructor, I was able to develop many skills in the classroom as a teacher and as a leader. I would highly recommend this position for anyone who would like to start a career in the Outdoor Education Industry.

Alicia G., Instructor

Thank you so much for an incredible week. The kids are jazzed; parents are more jazzed. Your team is incredible, and the planning and execution for a top notch science/outdoor education/leadership camp is celebrated. We are so glad we found you.

Danielle V., Teacher

Impressive! This is our first time to Pali. I have taken students to four other SoCal science camps and I would highly recommend Pali and plan to return next year.
