Home School Adventure Days

We know that you’re committed to creating an incredible and unique learning environment for your child, and we want to help. Why not end the school week with an adventure! Home School Adventure Days offer extraordinary opportunities to learn about ourselves, each other, and the world around us — while having a blast.

Whether playing in a meadow or deep woods games, practicing wilderness skills, exploring the river, or sharing stories and songs around the campfire, Adventure Days spark imaginations and ignite passions.

At checkout you will automatically receive this $15 discount off the cost of the second and any additional Schoolhouse programs purchased.
