An Extraordinary Outdoor Experience.

Your tuition includes:

  • A Small Class Size. We have twelve students and two teachers, 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 Canadian boots and Norwegian thermal underwear.
  • Travel / Outings. We spend each day in the wooded Miller Nature Area.
