The Stanford Outdoor Outreach Program (SOOP) was created to bring the outdoors to high schoolers who otherwise might not have the chance to experience it. We lead backpacking trips, in conjunction with teachers, for groups of amazing youth from East Palo Alto High School. We train leaders in fall quarter, teach students outdoor skills during winter and spring quarters, and then take students on a backpacking trip during spring quarter, to such places as Desolation Wilderness, Henry Coe State Park, and Pt. Reyes. If you are interested, send a message to with the message ’subscribe soop-group’ in the body (not the subject line) For more infoormation, see
