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 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, Bham: Writers' Camps

With fashion camp underway, we're halfway through our summer camp schedule. But there's still time to join us this summer. We have three incredible camps coming up in July. Hope to see you there!

July 8-12: You Write The Songs
Ages 10-14
Secret Stages' own Travis Morgan will lead this music appreciation and lyrics-writing camp! With the help of Travis and some special guest musicians, campers will craft some amazing lyrics and then collaborate on the composition with local bands, who will later record the songs on an album. The coolest thing happening this summer!

July 15-19: Writers' Workshop
Ages 15-18
This signature writing camp is for teens who want to spend one solid week working with professional writers and editors, and collaborating with other young writers in a workshop setting. Led by DISCO co-founder Elizabeth Hughey, the camp will cover poetry and short fiction and nonfiction.

July 22-26: Summer Food Stories 
Ages 7-11
Back by popular demand, our food-focused writing workshop is now a 1-week camp! We'll forage! We'll harvest! We'll do a ginger ale taste test! We'll write poems inspired by plums!

Not a kid anymore but wishing you were? We still have openings for volunteers for these camps. Sign up for a spot here.
