Spring Outdoor Week

The week of Monday April 3 through April 7, 2017 is a fun filled week of natural learning & exploration of the land around the Solar Campus in Summertown, TN. Outdoor Week will include nature scavenger hunts, creek walks, and other fun activities focused on using our five senses in the outdoors. We cook out, play games, find signs of animal life, look for edible and poisonous plants, study water flow, walk in the woods, and more.

Advance registration is required to attend.  If your family would like to join us for a day or more please use the form below to register.  We can accommodate up to ten visiting students per day, so if we reach our cap for any given day, it will be removed from the list of choices. Please note: Once you have submitted a registration form, you will be contacted with options for payment.

PARENT PARTICIPATION: Although parents and guardians are not required to participate in every activity or group, we do expect them to stay on site throughout the day and be available for certain activities with their student(s).

AGES: While this event is intended for students aged 5 and up, caregivers are welcome to bring younger children with the understanding that the caregiver will be 100% responsible for those under age 5 as well as remaining available for their older students when needed.

TIMING: Morning circle begins promptly at 9am, so plan to arrive at The Solar Campus a few minutes before 9:00 so your family can get settled in. Closing circle will begin around 3pm and should be ending sometime between 3:30 and 3:45.


  • $30 per first/only Satellite Campus student – Includes lunch
  • $20 per Satellite Campus sibling – Includes lunch
  • $40 is the daily drop-in rate for NON-FSSC students

Please note: We are not quite ready to accept registration payment via the new website.  Once you have submitted a registration form you will be contacted with options for payment. Also: If you feel these rates exclude your family, please complete the registration form below and use the message field to communicate your request for a reduced rate. Investment rates do not include food, plan on bringing enough food for lunch and snacks. Register for this event to receive driving directions and other suggested items to bring.
