Nature Explorers Homeschool

This Fall we will be trying a brand new format for our Nature Explorers Homeschool! Our new interactive outdoor program will consist of 10 sessions where students may sign up for as many or as few as they like and pay per program. Pre-registration is required and classes will close the week before the actual program. There is a maximum for each week so sign up early!

With this homeschool program we are looking to broaden the way your children think about the environment. Our goal is to expand current knowledge while giving them the tools to interpret nature and make connections to the physical world around them. Please read on for more details and descriptions of the different topics that will be covered.

Please contact Environmental Educator, Sara Lee, via email or phone 803.547.1086 with any questions.

Age Range: 7-12 years old
Cost: $20 a session
