Come experience our family's passion for sharing hands-on learning through nature and community resources.

Classes take place at Central Florida locations. Our focus for most of the classes is both parent and child participation.

We facilitate the process by providing the structure, content and environment for parents to experience learning right alongside their children.

What families are saying:

"It was evident you put your heart and soul into today."  M.B.

"We are so thankful for these experiences offered that we as moms intend to do but never quite get there."   The Lewis Family


"The class was excellent. Grayson is an amazing teacher to the kids, very prepared and works well with all the kids. After

attending the outdoor survival classes my daughter overcame many fears and is so excited to start camping and fishing.

She loved attending the class. Thank You!"  Karen Haslam


"What a fantastic day! All the canning and none of the mess, in a beautifully fitting setting.

We can not wait until our next adventure here."  The Kartegener Family


"It is a joy to watch my child fall in love with the classroom that our creator provided.

Thank you Holly!"  N. Nelson


"Gabe cannot stop talking about all that he's learned. He absolutely loved the class and I love it for him because

 I'm not an outdoorsy mom." S. Sepulveda


"It was way more fun than we even expected. Thank you for a wonderful day." P.H.

"Excellent presentation and hands-on experience!" Fabulous!  The Tastinger Family

"Andrew learned so much and as a parent I learned too. Very engaging and valuable content.

Well worth the cost."  S. Monk

Meet the Adventure Team

I'm Holly, I create and teach most of the classes. I am a 4th generation Floridian and I was raised to love nature. My experience grew over the years especially while homeschooling my two boys for the past 11 years. I also have been certified in the Project WILD courses offered through Florida Wildlife Commission. I am currently pursuing my Florida Master Naturalist certification. As of right now I am certified in Uplands, Coastal and Coastal Restoration.


Pictured with me is my youngest son Grant. He is our quiet observer and behind the scenes helper. Next is my husband Curtis, he pitches in with power tools, location classes and keeps my crazy ideas in check. He is also amazing with children, must have been all his years as a camp counselor. Grayson, my oldest, leads many of our outdoor excursions. His passion is being an outdoors-man in hunting, conservation, and nature. He is in high school and pursuing his dream of becoming an officer with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. Grayson loves sharing his knowledge with children.
