Every activity at Nature's Classroom is designed to connect participants to what they are learning by providing
hands-on experiences for each of the subjects being taught.
Customized Program and Schedule
Almost everything about the Nature's Classroom program is custom planned for each group. The Nature's
Classroom Program Director works with each group's trip organizer to help design a program to best fit the needs and goals of the group. Arrival times
departure times, activity choices, group and cabin assignments, and any specific subject emphasis are all customized for each group.
Nature's Classroom hires teachers who are passionate about the program, education, and sharing their
knowledge with the participants who attend. Teachers come from a variety of backgrounds, but are united by the common goals of the Nature's Classroom
program. All teachers are college graduates, certified in First Aid/CPR, and pass a criminal background check prior to employment.
Rustic Natural Setting
The Nature's Classroom facility is located in a beautiful bend of the Little River on Lookout Mountain in
Mentone, Alabama. During the summer months, Nature's Classroom's facility is the home of Riverview Camp For Girls, one of the south's premier
residential summer camps. An open air gymnasium, rustic cabins, grassy fields, scenic trails, and majestic rock formations along a gorgeous river all
make Nature's Classroom the perfect setting for learning in the outdoors!
Nature's Classroom is dedicated to supporting and serving the groups who attend throughout the planning
process, including providing representatives for any presentations to faculty, administration, parents, and/or potential participants.
