Join our community of explorers to support your homeschool
Elderberry Outdoor School in Maryland values the connection, care, flexibility, and community of a smaller school.
We value the enrichment of play and nature-based education, and cultivate children’s natural desires to explore, learn, and develop their skills and interests.
Kids learn best when school is immersive, fun, and supportive.

Benefits of the Elderberry Outdoor School in Maryland
Nature based education develops resilient children.
Classes take place safely outdoors on a local farm with shelter for inclement weather.
We’re meant to get our hands dirty. Especially when we’re young! Playing outdoors together is how we learn.
There are so many multi-disciplinary learning opportunities in nature. That’s why at Elderberry we learn and play outdoors nearly all day — every day!
