Experience Lockhart State Park as an outdoor classroom in this program for school-age kids!

Lockhart State Park’s homeschool program is a set of outdoor classes designed for homeschool kiddos grades 1-8.  The program series will take place from September to April, and classes are held on the 2nd week of every month. This year, you can choose between attending class on Wednesday at 2pm, Thursday at 9am, or Friday at 2pm.  There is no need to register; just come when you are able!  The topic for each month will be unique, so don’t miss out! 

January’s topic is geocaching!  Learn an outdoor activity that you can enjoy with your family!  You will explore latitude, longitude, satellites, and more.  Then, learn how to use a GPS unit and embark on a treasure hunt!

Prepare:  Dress for being outside (layers and sturdy shoes recommended) and bring water. 

Meet:  In the picnic area of the park.

Fees:  Regular park entrance fees apply ($3/adult, free for children 12 & under).
