Fall Outdoor Week

The week of Monday October 2 through October 6, 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.

We open the event to the public the middle three days of the week. Fees are associated with this event and advanced registration is required. 

Registration and payment is due by Sept 25. You will receive an invoice for the amount due. Once that is completed we will email you more details.

TIMING/DAILY SCHEDULE: The most important thing to know about our daily schedule for Outdoor Week is that each day starts promptly at 8:45am, and ends around 3:30pm.

As for the timing of specific activities on any given day, that will be firmed up in the days leading up to the start of Outdoor Week. (Our staff will have planning sessions leading right up to outdoor week, and they take into account not only the number and ages of visiting students, and their requests, but also any special resources that are available currently — such as a visitor to The Farm who has something to share with the group).

You should also know that on any given day we may change plans at a moment’s notice based on what’s happening with weather, group interests, etc…  Nature is a natural environment for natural learning. We respond to what’s happening in a natural way. As for the specific interests of our visitors (such as an edible and poisonous plants walk) these can usually be accommodated on any given day.

CAMPING: The Farm has camping spots available to rent. Please contact Vickie at [email protected] or the Ecovillage 931-964-4474 or email [email protected]

COST: $35/per student per day; $30/per student per day if registered with our umbrella school. Plus, $5/student for food if you decide to not bring a sack lunch (must not need to be cooked, etc.). As the adult(s) you have the option to have us provide lunch for you too. Just answer the form appropriately.

If you have any questions at all, please email [email protected]

Tuesday & Thursday are FULL.
