Night in the Woods

Starry sky framed by tree silhouettes

This class explores the different adaptations nocturnal animals utilize, showcasing through numerous sensory activities. Outback participants will learn how human senses change in the dark, and how nighttime creatures have heightened senses relative to us. Older groups have the option of a solo walk on the way back to the campsite, with students given a two-minute gap between each individual, with instructors bookending the group to ensure safety.

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.

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.
