We are excited to announce our annual event, “Dinner in the Woods”, in Mukwonago on Saturday, June 4th, 2022! It is an evening of great food, fun, entertainment, fantastic silent and live auction items, music and dancing, on our picturesque grounds, under the stars. The event actively supports and receives support from local and regional businesses like East Troy and Mukwonago Chambers of Commerce, Rohrorganics, Grassway Organics, Gaver’s Pavers, etc.

At Nature’s Classroom Institute, our mission is to expand the educational scope beyond the classroom. Currently, our residential Environmental Education program sites are located in Camp Lake, WI, and across the country, in Florida, Texas and California where we host over 3000 students annually. We provide a tangible experience that encourages the growth of children through academics, the environment, and community awareness to achieve a holistic educational experience. Our goal is to expand the program even more when our training facility is built on our Skyview campus.

Our Montessori day school is highly respected and regarded across the country for its focus on Environment, Agriculture and authentic Montessori education. We currently serve students 2 ½ - 18 years of age, from 16 neighboring cities and towns across 4 counties.
