Online Registration is now open! We are now enrolling for October.

With the resource of a 215-acre redwood forest, lake, stream and miles of trails, as well as large indoor spaces for schoolwork, we are offering elementary and middle school-aged children in grades 2-8 several options for Distance Learning coupled with Outdoor Enrichment during the fall semester with COVID safety measures in place.  We are also offering an afternoon-only Outdoor Enrichment option for students in Grades 1-8.

Our programs will begin on Tuesday, September 8th. The Full Day Program with Distance Learning is from 8:00AM-3:30PM, with a 2, 3 or 5 day per week option. The Outdoor Enrichment Program is from 12:30PM-5:00PM with a 2, 3 or 5 day per week option. If choosing either a 2- or 3-day program, you can submit a request for specific days during the enrollment process. We will honor your request if space is available on those days.

Full-Day Program: Children will participate in small groups of 10 with study time for schoolwork and plenty of learning in a beautiful natural environment. We will plan activities around your student’s distance learning schedule so they can complete their on-line assignments. Staff will be there to assist, but will not be able to give direct one-on-one attention for prolonged periods. Student’s engaged in distance learning will be given additional times each day to spend on schoolwork or other quiet individual activities such as reading or drawing. For the remainder of the day, the students will be outside, engaged in outdoor activities and exploration with experienced college-educated staff acting as facilitators of learning. This program is available for students in grades 2-8.

Outdoor Enrichment Program:  This program will be available from 12:30PM - 5PM and will be focused on outdoor recreation and activities that will not include Distance Learning support. There will be a time set aside each day for the students to do homework, read a book or have quiet time. This program is available for students in grades 1-8.

We encourage parents to communicate with each other to form their own cohort/group if possible. During the enrollment process, you will be able to list the children that you would like in your child's group. If a group formed by parents does not have enough students in it, we may add additional children up to a maximum of 10 per group.

We have broken down the cost by day, week and month, but registration will be by the month only. For September, registration will be for the date range of 9/8 through 10/2. For October, registration will be for 10/5-10/30. Registration for November will be available soon. Each month can be paid in full or by the week, with payment required for each week by the Friday prior.
