Experience Lockhart State Park as an outdoor classroom in this program for school-age kids! Please Note: this class meets at the Creekview Trailhead.

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! 

April’s topic is survival skills!  Learn how to build a shelter, identify edible plants, locate and filter water, and navigate without a compass.  These are the last homeschool classes for this school year (programs will return in September 2017), so make sure you join us!

Prepare:  We will be embarking on a 3/4-mile hike during this class, so prepare accordingly.  Dress for being active outside (layers and sturdy shoes recommended) and bring water. 

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