Outdoor Education

A pillar of R.O.C.K. programming revolves around expanding opportunities for our youth in Visitacion Valley. In order to achieve this goal, R.O.C.K. provides nature and outdoor adventure activities for students and families alike. Every year we bring students on fun excursions to places like Yosemite and the Lake Tahoe area in order to expose them to activities such as rock climbing, fishing, white water rafting, hiking, and more!children gardening
