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.

What: Beginner rock climbing and rappelling adventure 
Who:  Homeschoolers ages 8 and up
When: Friday May 8, 2015 11am-3pm
Where: Palisades Park, Oneonta, AL
Why: Rock climbing is awesome. 

Idlewild Adventure Company would like to invite the Alabama home school community to Palisades Park for a day of adventure and rock climbing! 

We will meet at the pavilion nearest the park office for ground school at 11am. Students will learn about rock climbing equipment, communication standards and the essential knots. 

At noon we will move to the rocks for our first rappel (which will be optional) and then spend the afternoon on climbing skills. There should be enough time for everyone to climb and rappel on a couple of routes. 

All equipment will be provided by Idlewild Adventure Company, including a helmet, harness and climbing shoes for all participants.

*Cost:  $25 per person climbing plus participants will need to purchase a $5 permit from the park office to climb.
