About the Homeschool Enrichment Series

Click here to be redirected to SLNC Nature Class Page

SLNC’s Homeschool Enrichment Series is an option for families who take a different approach to educating their children (ages 5-14).  Our 6-week program provides an opportunity for children to get hands-on experience within the STEM disciplines, without the formal constraints.  Each of the lessons are developed with the PA Standard Aligned System (SAS) in mind and ensure that children will excel in all settings.

There are three session per year: Fall, Winter, and Spring, and the topics covered are relevant to each season. We enjoy all types of weather at SLNC and will encourage your children to feel the same way.  It is important to make sure that your child dresses for the weather and is always prepared to get dirty!

The program is a drop-off program run by our environmental educators.  We encourage parents to minimize interactions with the class in order to reduce distractions.  Parents are not required to stay on site, but are welcome to hike the trails on their own during this time.

**Please note that a portion of the class will be indoors. All students will be required to wear masks while they are indoors. The majority of class will be outdoors, where masks will be optional**
