An Extraordinary Outdoor Experience.

The program includes:

  • A Small Class Size. We have 5 students per teacher, with a maximum of 10 students, allowing for children to form close bonds and to receive the individual attention they need.
  • High-Quality Gear Recommendations for Outdoor Play. We advise parents on specialized seasonal clothing designed to keep kids safe—from rain gloves and balaclavas to boots and thermal underwear.
  • Travel / Outings. We spend each day in the wooded Miller Nature Area and Bird Hills Nature Area.
