The Clermont County Park District provides a local resource for homeschool families via weekday educational nature programs that encourage hands-on experiential learning. Join other homeschool families and the Park District for experiential learning during our free public homeschool programs or create your own program for a private group.
All of our public homeschool programs are free unless otherwise noted. Advanced registration is required as registration is limited and programs have minimum attendance requirements. To make a reservation, please call the naturalist office at 513-760-8393 or email Robin. If you are interesting in seeing a new program developed, email us to let us know!
Programs will be held rain or shine. We will be outdoors for the majority of our programs so please, dress for the weather! In the event of severe weather, we will email at least 2 hours prior if the program is cancelled. If you need to cancel or change your registration, please let me know as soon as you can so that we can open up your spaces to others and continue to provide free homeschool programming.
Nature Play Days (Fall schedule)
1st and 3rd Fridays of September, October, and November
1 – 4 p.m.
Come by anytime between 1 and 4 p.m. for open-ended creative play in the Park. At Nature Play Days, we offer unstructured activities to help kids make friends, play, explore, and learn about the world together, like many of their parents and grandparents did as kids. It’s intended to encourage meaningful experiences in nature, which is not just fun, it’s great for health and learning!
Our nature play group meets on the first and third Fridays at Sycamore Park so keep coming back for more. It’s ideal for homeschool and preschool ages 3 – 14 but everyone is welcome. If you have any specific interests, email naturalist Robin at email@example.com and we’ll try to incorporate your topic!
Homeschoolers are encouraged to team up with 10 or more paid participants to schedule any offering from our program listings. All of our school programs are available for homeschool groups and can be tailored to meet specific standards and needs. We are currently overhauling our program offerings so please email Robin if you have a specific program topic in mind. Check back for a new list of program offerings in 2022!
