It’s hard to find a greater classroom than Bernheim when it comes to teaching kids at all ages and levels about nature. Our 16,000+-acre outdoor classroom makes learning both experiential and immersive.
These hikes offer opportunities for families and groups to join Bernheim educators for an afternoon of learning, exercise, and adventure. Appropriate for grades K-5, Homeschool Hikes include a short talk followed by a hike or activity that brings learning to life. Registration required. Contact Dan Pascucci for more information.

Costs vary depending upon location and desired program length. Contact Dan Pascucci for fee information and to schedule your visit.
In early 2021, Bernheim hosted a design competition for outdoor classrooms that attracted submissions from the U.S. and abroad. We’ve compiled them into a design guide, complete with budgets and constructions specifications. Find one that’s right for you!
