Where Education Meets Creation!

You do an awesome job giving your child(ren) a well-rounded education. At CranHill, we want to partner with you in your homeschooling experience! C.O.R.E. (CranHill Outdoor Recreation Education) is a program for kids ages 6-17. The program takes place once a month, where your child can explore the outdoors, learn about creation stewardship, be physically active, and gain knowledge of outdoor skills, all on a foundation of biblical truth. Each month’s program will be focused on a specific theme connected to outdoor education.
