Home School Programs

Monthly Home School Program

Camp Lincoln offers environmental education programs to homeschool students (ages 5-15) from 9 am to 4 pm on two Wednesdays and Fridays of each month! Participants will be divided into two groups according to age and will be led through fun and engaging age-appropriate activities that focus on natural science. Participants will spend the day in nature exploring, playing games, making crafts, journaling, and learning about local ecosystems. Campers should bring weather-appropriate clothing and gear, lunch, snack and water bottle. Programs are offered no matter the weather! 

Cost is $20/student with discounts offered for families of three or more students. Advanced registration is required.

We offer each program theme two times per month. This will allow us to accommodate the students that were unable to include last year because programs were at capacity. Please only sign your students up for one day per theme.
