Summer 2019 Base Camp Home School Day
This registration is for the summer session of homeschool programming at Base Camp. If you cannot attend on this date feel free to make a reservation for your specific homeschool group or co-op – our minimum group size for most activities is just ten! Activity options are listed in our Youth Program Catalog found here: http://www.explorebasecamp.org/Forms.
There will be programs specific to younger ages (6-9 years) and older students (10 and up). If you have participants of different ages that wish to remain together through the day, you may enroll both students in the younger program.
The field trip will begin at 9:00 AM and conclude at 2:00 PM. Check-in begins at 8:30 AM and pre-registration is strongly encouraged in guaranteeing your spot in the program. Parents or adults may register at no cost to observe the activities throughout the day, but are not required to remain onsite. For adults dropping youth off, we request that you accompany your children into the building for check-in (please do not let them walk up on their own). All youth participating in the program must have a waiver form signed by their parent or guardian (separate forms for each youth and each program). Participants must wear closed-toed shoes and comfortable clothing – dressing for the weather if your program includes outdoor activities. In addition, we recommend bringing a water bottle, bag lunch and a snack if desired.
Join us in June for Base Camp’s very first summer homeschool day! Our day will include two age-specific program options featuring some of our exciting new outdoor activities. Both programs will feature an opportunity for participants to experience outdoor climbing, which returns to Base Camp for the first time in three years following the completion of our brand-new outdoor tower! For ages 13 and up, groups will experience the added challenges of rappelling and team climbing – where two climbers move up the face cooperatively while their teammates provide encouragement and support the belay team on the ground.
Ages 6 and up: Outdoor Rock Climbing, Large and Small Field Games, Outdoor Air Archery
Ages 13 and up: Outdoor Team Climbing and Rappelling, Large and Small Field Games
Field trips, students have the option of staying for an additional open climb and archery session from 2:00-4:00 PM at a cost of $5.00/participant.
