NOTE: There are currently no home school camps scheduled for 2019
Join for us for a one- or two-night environmental learning experience full of outdoor skills and ecology education. During these camps, your students will have the opportunity for more in-depth and hands-on learning in an outdoor setting.
Through class options focused on ecology, wildlife, adventure, or cultural and natural history they will discover new ways to connect with the natural world, challenge themselves to push the limits of their comfort zones, and have fun in a new learning environment.
Our homeschool camps provide a wide variety of outdoor, inquiry-based courses, with course schedules that are customized for each camp to accommodate the ages and number of students. We tailor our classes to take the best advantage of the weather and seasons, so classes will vary from fall to winter.
Each camp will include a variety of age-appropriate, science-focused wildlife, ecology, and STEM classes. Some examples include:
- Creek Creatures–students catch and identify stream macroinvertebrates and use their data to determine the level of pollution in Windmill Creek.
- Predator/Prey–an engrossing simulation in which students act out predator/prey relationships.
- Wind Power!–Students study our wind turbine before engineering and building their own.
In addition to these courses, homeschool camp includes seasonal adventure classes, such as archery or cross-country skiing, as well as an opportunity to meet some of our educational animals with an evening Raptor Program!

If you are interested in future educational programs or camps for homeschoolers, please send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We intend for homeschool parents and teachers to utilize a portion of their time here to network, share ideas and experiences and network with other home educators. We hope it can be a great learning opportunity for students, teachers and parents alike. We welcome families of all sizes, and cooperatives are encouraged to inquire.
