2021-22 Homeschool Program
Registration for Camp Roger’s 2021-22 Homeschool Program has been extended through December 17!
Camp Roger’s Homeschool Programs for Elementary and Middle/High School are wonderful opportunities for your child to interact with other children and gain a deeper understanding of God and the world around them.
As a registered Homeschool student, your child will attend one day every month, throughout the entire 2021-22 school year. Classes begin in September and end in May (see the Homeschool Calendar link below for specifics). You may also choose to add on Enrichment Classes for your elementary student.
Students must turn the ages listed by September 30, 2021. Classes meet from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm. Parents provide sack lunch and transportation. Students must be at least 6 years old by the first day to participate.
My child's age qualifies for two programs, how do I decide between them?
We have been deliberate about creating a progression between program types and hope your student will benefit from multiple years in each age group. The overlap between ages within some programs allows flexibility when deciding the appropriate group for your child. Please first consider the academic level that is the best fit for your child and match that to a corresponding program.
How much will homeschool cost?
The cost of each program is listed above within the description. Payment is due at the time of enrollment. Please note: an additional $25 will be added to any registration received after September 1. A confirmation email will be sent after we receive your registration and payment. If you need to pay with cash or check, please email [email protected] for instructions. PLEASE NOTE: If you register after October 1, the overall fee for 2021-22 Homeschool Program will not be reduced for missed months. The fee will remain the same regardless of when your student is registered.
Can I register with a friend or group?
When registering, you may request that your child be grouped with a friend or sibling within a two-year age range. Elementary groups are by age and typically follow ranges such as: ages 6-8, ages 8-10, and ages 10-12. This may affect some friends or siblings being together, but we have found this to be best for the learning experience of the students. There are opportunities for students to connect with other groups during morning break, lunch, group activities, etc. Groups are created in September. Requests for friend or group changes will not be accepted after the first class. PLEASE NOTE: If you are registering after October 1, we will not be able to guarantee friend requests (since group assignments are already set).
What if I need to switch our scheduled sessions or cancel our registration?
Prior to the program start date, can you request to switch your scheduled sessions or cancel your child’s registration by emailing [email protected] or calling 616-874-7286. Prompt notification is appreciated and may allow for another student to register. Sessions can be switched at no cost as openings allow. A $15 administrative fee will be charged for cancellations, and the remainder of your payment will be refunded. Registrations are nontransferable.
When is registration open and how does it work?
Registration opens every year on April 15 at 8:00 am. For this year, registration has been extended to midnight on December 17. Registrations are received on a “first come/first serve” basis. If you have not used our online registration system before, you will be required to create a new account before registering. We update our website as classes are filled.
What is your attendance policy during the school year?
If your student will not be attending on a schedule program day, please inform our Director of Outdoor Education by email at [email protected] or by calling Camp Roger’s office at 616-874-7286. We will extend prorated refunds for COVID-related closings and absences only.
