Forest School for a Day

20+ Awards!

What are Forest Schools?

Developed in Europe, Forest Schools are a model of education where most of the learning takes place outside. Forest Schools still follow the curriculum- they just use the natural world as a venue for teaching about science, social studies, math, the arts and physical education.

Forest Schools encourage discovery, hands-on-learning, working collaboratively, and exploring the local environment.

Where outdoor learning comes to life

More and more studies are showing the health benefits of time spent outside, including improved mental health, increased focus and initiative, and the ability to cooperate more. Most importantly, students report being happier after spending even one day outside.

You’ll spend the entire day outside, participating in two of our award-winning curriculum-linked programs. Try your hand at traditional games, learn tracking and trailing, become a bird whisperer, and learn about bird ecology or create unique nature art.

Programs are taught by professional educators, many teacher-trained.
