History of Our Program

Shady Creek Outdoor School was known previously as Woodleaf Outdoor School.
In 2006 we were able to purchase our own facility and moved the program to Shady Creek.
Our program has been providing outdoor education to the students of Yuba-Sutter for more than 55 years!

Shady Creek Outdoor Education Foundation (SCOEF) was founded in 1990 in support of the Sutter County Outdoor Education program, which is operated by the Sutter County Superintendent of Schools Office and is open for participation to any public, private, or home school organization seeking to augment their science program.
