Sky Mountain Outdoor Education Center
Sky Mountain Outdoor Education Center can accommodate up to 250 students and is located on PG&E watershed lands near Yuba Gap off of Highway 80 in Placer County, adjacent to Lake Valley reservoir. As a part of the Land Conservation Commitment, PG&E has donated 62 acres that include the camp to the San Joaquin County Office of Education (SJCOE). SJCOE is an innovative organization that intends to use the camp at Sky Mountain as a youth environmental and science camp to connect youth to the outdoors and give them a place to learn about nature, offer teachers an ideal place for professional development, and offer other groups a natural setting for team building and outdoor recreation. SJCOE will use grant funding from the Stewardship Council to purchase the camp facilities and make necessary camp upgrades to serve the diverse students that will visit the camp.
