Learning Through Nature

Children have an innate connection to nature; we seek to nurture a lifelong reverence and relationship to the natural world.  In our unique program, students in Grades 1–6 spend one day every other week in our “nature classroom” and playground at Sacred Mountain Sanctuary, a setting of 90+ mountain acres in Candler NC.

In the Nature Immersion Program, students:

  • Learn gardening, farming, environmental awareness and wilderness skills
  • Observe plant and animal life cycles
  • Create structures from natural materials
  • Run, play, and explore streams, trees, fields, and mountains
  • Build strong bodies and natural wisdom
