Our facility will be closed Wednesday through Friday, June 7th, 8th, and 9th,
for staff training and professional development.

As always, you’re invited to hike our trails, which are open daily from dawn until dusk.

Welcome! Our facility is open on weekdays from 9am to 4pm and on weekends from 10am to 2pm.

Wearing a face mask indoors is optional. Because we are a childcare facility and follow public health protocols, we have limited access to some public offerings and areas of our facility. We appreciate your patience as we work to find a healthy balance of access and safety for our community.

As always, our grounds and trails featuring self-guided tours are free and open daily from dawn until dusk.

Home School: Fall on the Frontier

October 20, 2015 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm


Pioneers had a lot of work to do during the fall harvest time. Aside from harvesting their crops, they had to chop and stack wood, grind corn, and prepare food for the family. There are plenty of chores to be done on our frontier, although there will also be time for some fun games and activities for all of our pioneers to play!  Students will also get the chance to churn butter and taste their own creation (made with heavy whipping cream and eaten on a saltine cracker).

Online registration closes at midnight the night before programming. Walk-in registration accepted if space available. Please call ahead to check availability.
