Backyard Adventures

You don’t have to go further than your backyard to have an adventure. These fun, mini-adventures help students see the world with eyes of wonder and to learn by playing. They will teach all three steps of our formula. First, we’ll inspire you with a dream. Second, you’ll have to plan your adventure. And third, you’ll get to do it! Along the way, we hope you find a few things that you’ll love to do and learn how to overcome obstacles and have fun doing it!
