Summer Program

Ages 6-14

Our homeschool collaborative operates all year round, but we do have limited openings for families who want to jump in and “live the homeschool lifestyle” in the summer.

Weekly camp membership includes a weekly swimming beach trip, a weekly field trips, two healthy snacks and a nutritious lunch, as well as unlimited fluoride-free water.

A week of our ‘summer camp’ program is a great way to try out the school and see if our community would be a good fit for your family.  

No two weeks are ever the same!

2024 Session Schedule

Our daily rhythm is such that our kids have plenty of time to opt in to the daily themed sessions, as well as have free time to create, explore, socialize, and visit with our animal friends during the day.
