Education Outdoors

The Hamlin School’s edifice is in San Francisco, but its education reaches out to the ocean, the trees, the rivers, the mountains, and up towards the starry night sky.

The Hamlin School provides a robust Outdoor Education program that allows students to explore a variety of places in and around the Bay Area for one to five nights depending on grade and location. By graduation our students will have backpacked, hiked, camped, climbed, white water rafted, cross-country skied, and played in forests, seashores, mountains, and rivers across Northern California.
