Family Homeschool Experiences

The Focus Wild Arizona Homeschool Program began in 2008. The purpose is to provide enriching field experiences for homeschool families that will immerse students of all ages in outdoor recreation and real science. Learn more.

 

Getting Kids Outside

Research shows that regular time spent in the outdoors can have an extremely positive impact on the emotional and physical health of children. However, it has become increasingly more difficult for parents to plan meaningful outdoor experiences. We have some easy ways to get started. Learn more.

 

Useful Resources

If your child just can't get enough wildlife and you are looking for even more resources to fuel their interests, then be sure to check out the wealth of educational materials that we have. Learn more.

 

"It's a good thing to learn more about nature in order to share this knowledge with children; it's even better if the adult and child learn about nature together. And it's a lot more fun." - Richard Louv, Last Child in the Woods: Saving Our Children from Nature-Deficit Disorder

"Hands-on experience at the critical time, not systematic knowledge, is what counts in the making of a naturalist. Better to be an untutored savage for a while, not to know the names or anatomical detail. Better to spend long stretches of time just searching and dreaming." - E.O. Wilson, The Naturalist
