Being a peaceful and fulfilled homeschooling parent means getting support.
WE are that support for you.
You get all the benefits of homeschooling, flexibility, and being involved with your child's education while simultaneously gaining 12 hours each week to take care of YOUR needs.
While you are taking care of the other parts of your life and enjoying some rest...your children are having an educational like NO OTHER.
They are immersed in nature in the 100% outdoor classroom.
They are learning academics hands-on, having support with completing their curriculum, and learning skills like communication, teamwork, empathy, expressing their feelings, etc.
The WHOLE child is nourished at ORA...their physical body through movement as well as rest, their mind through exploration and empowerment, and their soul through emotional support and connection.
We KNOW homeschooling is a lot. We want to make it simple and fulfilling for your child AND YOU.
At Organic Roots Academy, we follow 5 Pillars.
We make sure that the families in our school are the best fit for this unique program.
We have high standards for our team of teachers and guides.
Our 10-year-old grandson has been attending Organic Roots Nature
Camps for the past two years – and he has loved every minute of it –
everything from nature hikes to food gathering/preparation, i.e, which
berries, roots are edible and which should be avoided. He’s also learned
about using what can be found in the woods to make their shelter.
In addition to learning so much about nature and how important it is to
preserve what we have, he has also developed friendships with the
other campers and has learned the importance of working together.
He is very excited about attending this summer and has even told his
school teacher about it. She, in turn, is interested in planning a school
field trip to Organic Roots Farm.
Organic Roots Farm Nature Camp is truly a wonderful, enlightening
experience for our children. They develop survival skills,
communication skills and mindfulness as they learn the importance of
taking care of the planet, being kind and helpful to one another.
