Outdoor School

The H. E. Butt Foundation Outdoor School is the one place where education, adventure, and community come together as one. Partnering with San Antonio Schools, The Outdoor School helps San Antonio teachers, students, and communities to get outdoors and connect with their natural spaces. Our partnerships culminate in a 3-day, 2-night retreat set within the rugged beauty of the Texas Hill Country.
