Coloma Outdoor Discovery School

This excellent educational opportunity is offered to all of our 4th-grade families each year to support students' understanding of the history of the State of California, a critical learning standard.  There is absolutely nothing like an old-fashioned hands-on constructivist approach to learning about our State’s history! 


The Coloma Outdoor Discovery School’s Gold Rush program is designed for fourth graders, and is correlated with the California Content Standards. Our intention is to celebrate the culture, music, and folklore of the California Gold Rush while using lessons of the past to awaken students’ interest and sense of responsibility for the environment.  At CODS, students live the Gold Rush: stories, songs, skits, and characterizations all help to convey the social and economic community of early Coloma. Students will walk in the footsteps of the 49ers and experience some of the challenges of surviving away from home.  All of the educational programs at the Outdoor School operate around the concept of respect: for nature, oneself, and others.”
