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.

Aug. 29, 2016 Cleveland: Hotter 'n Hazier Tube Float

Hotter n' Hazier Tube Float

Saturday August 29

Float the river in lazy, slow, cool water. We will meet at 9:30 AM in the parking lot behind the Tonka Hardware/Shell station in Cleveland, then caravan to private property where we will leave our cars. There's a short hike through poison ivy to the river. Generally a good washing in the river gets rid of the poison ivy. Bring a floating device, anti-poison ivy cream, sun screen, river shoes (not flip flops), insect repellent, a sun hat suitable for the water, a picnic lunch and drinks in a cooler. We will be on the river one to two hours, depending on the swiftness of the river. We will picnic at the end of the trip.

Registration limited to 25 people To register call Meagan (205) 4870-5297 or email outings@FriendsOfTheLocustForkRiver.org

The outing is free of charge, but donations can be made. All donations directly support Friends of the Locust Fork River in its efforts to protect the river.
