The 4-H "Homeschoolers Only" Outdoor School is a program sponsored by OSU Extension Service - Polk County 4-H, Oregon 4-H Foundation and Polk Christian Home Educators, and is open to all homeschooled youth in grades 5-8.
We will be having high school and college age youth (who are or have been homeschooled) to serve as counselors.
The program is designed to give homeschool youth hands-on outdoor learning experiences with natural science, pond study, forestry, compass/GPS, archery, aquatic insects, digital photography, animal habitat, survival skills, and more.
Free time activities may include canoes, swimming, swings, crafts, archery, and more. Camp participants will stay in Cottages with living room, bunk rooms, and shower room enclosed (girls) or Cabins (boys), on opposite ends of the campground. This beautifully wooded location is just 6 miles from downtown Salem.
Cost for the overnight camp is $50 per youth, and students in grades 5-8 are invited to join us for a fun, family-friendly camp. Early bird registration: $40 if registered by August 30th. (Scholarships may be available; call for more information.)
At least one of the girls' counselors will be a homeschooler from the Roseburg area. There are usually 3-10 local Douglas County homeschooled students who attend this camp every year. I've attended this particular camp as a counselor, and it is very organized and well-monitored. My daughters love it, and I am picky about camps they attend! (Julieanne)
