Educating a group of kids in a homeschool environment has the potential to become a bit monotonous. Brighten up their day by scheduling a field trip to Refreshing Mountain’s outdoor classroom!

Our Homeschool Days give your group the chance to enjoy all sorts of exciting and educational activities in a stunning outdoor setting. The change of scenery is exactly what your group needs to renew their passion for learning and experience new opportunities.

A Look at the Typical Refreshing Mountain Homeschool Day Schedule

Bring your group on out to Refreshing Mountain and they will have the opportunity to participate in all sorts of activities designed to stimulate their intellectual curiosities and enhance their physical fitness.

The typical Homeschool Day schedule starts out with a 10 AM arrival and check-in. First through third-graders proceed to the climbing tower while fourth through sixth-graders enjoy some pedal-cart action. Older students in grades seven through twelve head on out to the high ropes course.

By 11:30, the youngest group will be learning about paintball and taking their shot at targets. Fourth through sixth-graders transition to the climbing tower while the older students embark on a journey through Pennsylvania’s captivating woodlands. All groups break for lunch around 12:30.

At 1:30, the youngsters head on out to the woodlands while the fourth through sixth-graders take aim at paintball targets and the oldest group takes on the climbing tower.

The day is capped off with a physical challenge for the first through-third graders, an adventure through the woodlands for the fourth through sixth-graders and paintball target-shooting for the seventh through twelfth-graders.

Other Homeschool Day activities include the chance to enjoy single zipline rides, giant swings, team scavenger hunts, nature science programs and GPS-guided nature hunts.

There is always something to do in this beautifully lush green corner of Pennsylvania! It is the perfect way to get your homeschool group out of the house and into nature.
