Bring Nature Into the Classroom!

Sometimes you just have to "see it, touch it, do it, or experience it" firsthand. And what better classroom setting than Nature?

Our professional staff works with you to design programming to meet your educational goals, objectives and proficiency needs and to support Ohio Academic Content Standards. On or off-site presentations are available for area schools in advance of your visit to assist in preparing your staff, students, and parents for their school camp experience. Pre-visit tours of camp by school staff or administration are also welcomed when planning your stay at Hiram House School Camp. Fall, Winter, and Spring programs are available.
