Learn at Morse Hill Outdoor Education Center

An Outdoor Educational Alternative to Elementary School

Shutesbury, MA


Learn at Morse Hill Outdoor Education Center is an outdoor alternative to elementary school located in Shutesbury, MA. We offer experiential education opportunities where students thrive in small groups and engage in hands-on learning. We offer both full-week homeschool programs and individual daily programs for students grades K-6.

Our program has provided the foundation and landscape for natural growth in building social, emotional, cognitive, and motor skills for many students over the past few years. Our practices have centered around students building social, emotional and self regulation skills; acquiring leadership though ethical decision making and advocacy; and learning collaborative problem solving and restorative justice practices while emphasizing anti-racist and anti-bias education throughout all aspects of learning.

“Earth and sky, woods and fields, lakes and rivers, the mountain and the sea, are excellent schoolmasters, and teach us more than we can ever learn from books.” -John Lubbock
