Homeschool Series at Blandford

Outdoor, hands-on learning in 264 acres of forests and meadows!


Homeschool field trips at Blandford immerse students in nature while engaging their curiosity and connection to the natural world. All of our programs are taught by our highly experienced and educated staff and are designed with modern science education standards in mind.


Programs are available for children ages 5-12, divided into three groups for age-appropriate content. We welcome up to five parent chaperones per group, especially for our youngest students who may need some extra assistance. Chaperones will be admitted on a first come, first served basis. Registration for chaperones is required, but there is no additional fee. For parents with multiple children who wish to chaperone, we strongly suggest registering with your youngest child if space allows.


Each registration is sold as a package of three programs on the dates and times below. Please note that we have a minimum number of participants required for each age group. If we do not meet this minimum, that age group may be cancelled.


Age Groups:

Acorns: 5-7

Sprouts: 8-9

Oaks: 10-12


Program Dates and Information:

September 22 - Seeds & Plants

October 20 - Ecosystem Energy

November 17 - Whooo is an Owl?


All programs are 1-2:30pm

Registration Information:

Registration cost is $25/student for Members and $30/student for Non-Members and includes all three programs for the dates listed. A complete health form must be submitted during registration. Missed sessions will not be refunded. Sessions cancelled due to weather will be rescheduled if possible or a partial refund will be issued.
