Homeschool Program

Invest in your child’s homeschool education through outdoor experiences! This monthly opportunity allows students space to grow in faith and community within the forests, lakes, and wetlands of Camp Roger or Camp Scottie. Our experienced teaching staff uses the outdoors as a classroom, helping students explore God’s creation and learn to be good stewards of what He has given us.
