Connect with the land through education, ancestral skills, and fun imaginative play!

We offer  all-outdoor homeschool sessions in two age groups for kids 5-7 and 8-14. Sessions are led by our trained outdoor educators and run from 1:30-3:30 PM at Marsh Sanctuary in Mt Kisco, a 156-acre preserve with open meadows, ponds, streams, and forest trails to explore across the seasons.

 

Everyone is still required to bring a mask.

There will be some MASK ON activities still in our programs.

There will be other MASK OFF activities in our programs.


Vaccination records will be required to submit in August.

Homeschool will resume in September and run through December. We will begin registrations by the end of July. If you'd like to be added to the Homeschool Newsletter for when the registrations first open up, subscribe here

Now it's time to put it all together! Each day will have a different themed mission that will guide your child to utilize some wild skills.
