School’s IN: For Parents

Parents know that kids love getting outdoors but busy schedules can sometimes make it hard to get them out as much as they would like. We can help! We offer a variety of enriching programs in fun and safe learning environments.

EdenAcres stands behind our mission to empower learners of all ages to discover and improve their community through experiential learning. We aim to provide programs and services to everyone in the community, regardless of their financial circumstances. Through the generous donations of individuals and businesses, we are able to provide scholarship assistance to make that possible. Scholarships are provided within the limits of available funding.

Summer Outdoors

EdenAcres summer camps bring out the best in kids by engaging them with the natural world and their community in a positive and thoughtful way. Check back in February to see our 2018 summer line-up!

Early Learning Forest School

Many of the world’s great environmental leaders and activists began their lives playing for long hours outside; discovering frogs, getting dirty, and finding a love and connection with nature. This program is truly a gift we are giving to our children, and the skills and experiences will stay with them for a lifetime. Sign up now to reserve a spot in our Early Leaning Forest School, starting in Fall 2018!
