Clearpool is an Outdoor Classroom for Home-Schooled Students

The Partner School Program
The Partner School Program for Environmental Science and Experimental Learning broadens the classroom curriculum for students with hands-on activities in the outdoors. Learn more >

A hands-on educational experience that builds practical knowledge and skills in a progressive program to enhance academic studies for home-schooled students in grades K-12.

Semester-long, age-appropriate programs engage students in seasonal nature study, outdoor recreation, and team activities alongside other students for a great group experience.

Each full-day session includes skills-based learning, outdoor exploration, community-building activities, reflection and, of course, lunch and snack. Topics of study focus on ecological systems, natural history, and environmental sustainability while integrating outdoor skills, leadership development and challenging team-building activities.

Schedule your customized educational day at Clearpool.
Let us build a home-scheduled group visit that touches on topics and curriculum goals. Examples of previous day trips include:

Water Wonders
Elementary School, 6-8 years old
Exploration and sensory activities are the features that set this wonderful water adventure apart from other programs. Our youngest homeschool students will learn all about water, explore the various wetlands found right on campus, and understand the importance of protecting our wetlands and drinking water. Students will finish the semester relating their newly acquired knowledge and skills to their everyday life

Have To Have A Habitat
Middle School, 9-12 years old

Strong relationships are the key to success. This semester will focus on the ecological relationships that happen in the forest, and how they relate to the human communities that interact with them. Students will challenge themselves with new adventures in a safe and encouraging learning environment.

Teen Leadership at Clearpool
High School, 13-16 years old

The teen leadership program is designed to develop next generation’s leaders. This cumulative program includes leadership training, inter-age mentoring, teambuilding, service projects and more that will guide students in developing the motivation, passion and knowledge to develop their own unique leadership potential.
