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.

Sep. - Nov., Cullman & South Cumberland State Park, TN: "Found Footage Film" involving camping, hiking, tours, etc.

A 'found footage film'

South Cumberland State Park, TN
and Cullman, AL

September, October and November

What I need:
In September, I will head up to South Cumberland State Park to meet our local liaison and scout a few places he has in mind, take lots of photos, and plan a meeting in Cullman for brainstorming. 

I need 10-12 teens and a couple parents to get involved! 

We will go through the locations which will include caves, old buildings and old growth forests and create a plot, write up some scenarios and come up with a production plan. In October and November, we will go up to the park a few times and do our filming which will include night shots while we camp out! The plot should include some type of cryptozoological creature we can leave clues and signs of around the park such as footprints and fur. Think Bigfootesque! This is meant to be all in fun and get some exposure for the park (so people will go there and look for our clues!) as well as give the teens some experience with planning and shooting.

If you can't go to the park to help with the filming, we can still use your ideas in the planning phase!
