Homeschool Programs

Brookgreen’s monthly Homeschool Explorer Programs will be offered the third Thursday of each month, January throughout May and September through November. 

Homeschool groups may participate in a themed program that is designed to offer lively, hands-on, standard-based lessons about nature, history, and art. Students will enjoy interactive presentations, tours of exhibits, live animal presentations, and complete a make-and-take craft. 

The Homeschool Program is for children 4 years-8th grade.  Parents are required to interact with their children throughout the various presentations, stations, and fun experiences! No children under 4 years old may attend.

Cost is $7.00 per student with one parent per family admitted free of charge.
