The Jack L. Boyd Outdoor School at ​Camp Green Meadows, affectionately known as "Camp Green Meadows", is an outdoor school providing experiential science and environmental education. It is operated by the Merced County Office of Education (MCOE), serving approximately 300 fifth and sixth grade students annually, mostly from Merced County. In addition, outside agencies, organizations and families rent the facilities when the outdoor school is not in session.

Camp Green Meadows has been in operation for almost 52 years. The cabins and buildings are showing their age and are in dire need of repair or renovation.

The MCE Foundation's first fundraiser on September 10th brought in donations to help renovate the Nurse's Station at the Outdoor School. The goal is to raise $400,000. The MCOE is dedicating $250,000 and we only need $150,000 in donations and pledges.

A renovated Nurse's Station will provide easier access for wheelchairs, enhance the space for children who become ill, need first aid or monitored medication during their stay, enhance the classroom space for snow days and enhance accommodations for the nurse.
