Out'n'About Treehouse Treesort LLC
& Treehouse Institute of Takilma
At the Treehouse Institute of Takilma, we offer several courses for our Treemusketeers. Like most institutions of higher learning, we offer both core and elective (extree) classes. Unlike most institutions, our elective classes are geared totally to the individuals' desires.
We do not dictate curriculum, we allow each student the opportunity to help create curriculum. We do, however, expect each Treemusketeer student to either have an un-abiding interest in treehouses and treeminology or pursue one of our alltreenut majors.
Our focus is upon song, dance & laughter, primarily
A happy student is a joy to teach. We enjoy teaching. We expect students to enjoy the learning process.
Everyone is invited to participate in our activitrees even if not staying overnight or more at our place, but PLEASE call ahead so we can better serve your needs!
