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

Lockhart State Park’s homeschool program is a set of outdoor classes for homeschool kiddos grades 1-5. Classes are usually held on the first full week of the month (September through April), and you can choose between Tuesday at 10am, Wednesday at 2pm, or Thursday at 10am. We cover a different topic every month, so don’t miss out! 

December’s topic is survival skills! Learn how to build a shelter, identify edible plants, locate and purify water, and navigate without a compass!

Registration: Program is limited to 25 participants, so registration is required. Please call park HQ at 512-398-3479 during business hours (8am-5pm daily) to register for this program. Please register only if you’re sure your student can attend, and if your plans change, please call and cancel so that another child can have that spot.

Prepare: Wear weather-appropriate clothing and sturdy shoes. Bring water. We will be hiking 3/4-mile on moderate terrain.

Meet: Meet your guide at the Creekview Trailhead. If driving from park headquarters, take your first left-hand turn, pass the campgrounds, and park along the paved loop.

Fees: The class is free with entry to the park. Regular park entrance fees are $3/adult, free for children 12 & under.
