Small Group Programs – Homeschool and Afterschool

Our Small Group Programs are based on our regular school programming, offering environmental education and nature connection in a small group setting that is less structured than the school classroom. We learn through educational activities, play games, do crafts and take short hikes on the nature trail. We generally offer organic snack provided by local farms.

We offer morning, midday and after school programs based on your family’s needs, for homeschool and public school students. Please contact us to schedule your group’s program or to join an existing group.

To learn more about specific programs, check out our brochure. Themes change week by week – to learn more about the type of lessons we offer, please contact us!

We have just decided to offer a very special weekly program with ancestral arts expert Chuck Kritzon! Contact us to schedule your weekly 3-hour program for kids, or monthly 5-hour program for adults.
