We integrate the outdoor classroom with rigorous academic concepts, conservation-based themes, and connection with nature. Audubon Vermont's series of monthly outdoor nature-based programs focus on key science concepts. Each program is designed to give you a platform from which to build units/lessons in your homeschooling or to supplement your child's classroom learning at school.
We offer a monthly session for 6- 12 year-olds. We have two teachers available to give us the flexibility to work in age-appropriate small groups or come together as one big class.
Note: Parents may drop off students or are welcome to join the program.
New this year! Schedule: Five hours of programming, including a 30 minute lunch break. All programs run from 9 am to 2 pm.
