YMCA Camp Lincoln Outdoor Education

Homeschool Programs

We are excited to announce that our homeschool programs are back.  Join us for fun and engaging days out at camp, where we will explore the outdoors, learn some cool stuff, and hang out with friends old and new.  As always, our goal is to provide a safe and fun environment for all of our students. 

Due to the current situation, we have added a few precautions in line with CDC and state guidelines, including extra cleaning of all camp facilities, smaller group sizes, a short health survey for each student upon arrival, social distancing within groups, and mask usage when indoors.  If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to reach out. 

We are looking forward to seeing you back at camp!
