Treewild Forest Classroom, in Shelburne, VT, is a once-a-week outdoor school program for children who thrive in nature-based, hands-on educational settings. Students spend one day a week expanding their science, math, literacy, and social emotional skills through hands-on, outdoor activities. Treewild Forest Classroom meets from 9am to 3pm. We follow the CVSD school calendar for major holidays.
Some recent highlights have included
- tapping maple trees at a small sugarhouse
- mapping the local trails with a compass
- winter Olympics with cardboard bobsled, ice sculpture and poetry slam
Led by the renowned outdoor classroom specialist, Joplin James, the Treewild program is designed for public, private, and home-school students to have an outdoor educational day that augments and enhances the academics that they are getting during the rest of the week.
