Everest Academy is a ministry of Everest Family Church in Hayden. We offer freedom along with quality resources, information, activities and support to those homeschooling in Alabama. We believe that the parent has the best interests of their children at heart. We believe that the parent is the first and only teacher that a child needs. In keeping with this philosophy, we wish to be a very hands-off church "cover" school and allow the parent to lead and guide their children in the direction and at the pace they feel is best suited to their children. We ask only for what the law requires while offering support along with quality resources to aid families in their efforts.

July 12, Huntsville: Burritt on the Mountain Adventure

Please join us for an adventure in the Whimsical Woods.
We will be having a guided tour/class & game based on fairy tales. 

Date: Friday, July 12
Time: 9:00 am 
(Optional: bring a picnic lunch to enjoy afterwards)

Location: Burritt on the Mountain
3101 Burritt Drive, Huntsville, AL 35801

Details:  We will be doing both the educational story venues and the game before lunch. Anyone who wants to is welcome to stay for a picnic lunch and to play afterwards. 

The story venues with lessons include Little Bo Beep’s sheep also had a job to do. They grew all that wool so she could stay warm, but what do you do with the wool? You will help Little Bo Beep prepare the wool to turn it into clothing and blankets. Peter Cottontail isn’t just for little kids. Learn the art of growing a garden in a small space. This will include the plant life cycle. Also learn about urban wildlife that will probably visit your garden too. Snow White’s friend will greet you at the sluice. You will learn the history of coal mining and pan for gems in the sluice. Watch out for the Wicked Stepmother! 

The game is based on children's literature of the 1800's. The favorite hero has left, and those playing the game (our children) go from story to story trying to find a new hero. At each station they are given a new jewel for their crown, and at the end of the game, they are each given a button identifying them as heroes because they have demonstrated the various traits of a hero as they've gone though out the game.

Cost:  $11.00 per person, adults and children. Children under 2 are free. 

Sign-up Deadline: June 12
