At Home with Nature is a program designed to supplement science and history homeschool education through fun, interactive, hands-on activities. Each series consists of three programs. Students ages 5-12 will be divided into groups based on their age. Each session is limited to 30 students, with students divided into two groups. Most sessions will take place outdoors, so please dress for the weather. 

Each series is $20 per student and $18 for each additional sibling. (CNC members: $16 per student, $14.40 for each additional sibling.)

Pre-registration is required at least one week before the start of the series. A complete health form must be on file. Contact Jenn Kirts, Director of Programs, at for questions or current protocol.

Series must be registered for as a package, and missed sessions cannot be made up or refunded. Individual sessions may be cancelled due to weather at CNC’s discretion. Sessions cancelled by CNC will be refunded.
