The Outdoor Classroom Board

Make a Donation

to The Outdoor Classroom

The Outdoor Classroom is a large part of what Boyce Mayview Park offers the community.  A 501c3 organization, the facility depends on the generosity of donors in order to provide high quality educational opportunities for all ages.

Donations to The Outdoor Classroom are used for scholarship programs to help defray costs for children to attend programs, the development of new programming, and for operating expenses. 

  • A donation of $300 will enable an entire class of students to engage in our hands-on programs here in the Boyce Mayview Park for an entire day including busing.
  • A donation of $100 will take one of our interactive presentations to a Preschool, Library or Adult Living Center.
  • A donation of $50 can bring a group of scouts to the Classroom for a nocturnal experience and s'more by our campfire.

Groupon Grassroots

Our GROUPON Grassroots campaign was a success!  Thank you to everyone across the country that donated.  We were able to raise $1,380 through donations in addtion to the $1,000 that GROUPON donated!  That is enough to bring out two full grade levels of low income students to the Classroom.
