Orchard's Nature Challenge

This campaign ended on March 06, 2017, but you can still make a gift to The Orchard School by clicking here!

Join us March 3-6, 2017 for our social fundraising campaign and celebration benefitting Orchard's Outdoor Education Program. 

Outdoor education is an integral part of every student’s experience at Orchard from Preschool through eighth grade. Nature is a profound teacher, therefore, lessons in each grade level are intentionally designed to invite students to interact with the natural world. 

Why is it so important to take our lessons outside?  "Nature As Teacher" is one of Orchard's 9 promises and we believe that being outdoors builds confidence, promotes creativity, ignites imagination, and makes kids think. 

"Nature creates a unique sense of wonder for kids that no other environment can provide." Richard Louv, author of Last Child in the Woods: Saving Our Children from Nature Deficit Disorder

We are challenging all members of the Orchard community to come together to help us reach our goal. 

4 days. 75 donors. Are you up for the challenge?

*All donations made to this campaign will also count towards this year's Annual Giving goal.
