for homeschooling families
(Registration form at bottom of page)
Camp Trinity introduced the Outdoor Classroom in fall 2020 to assist homeschooling families. While most homeschooling families have little difficulty covering the core subjects (reading, math, language arts), sometimes they can use a little help with other parts of the curriculum (science, history, geography and fine arts).
That’s where the Outdoor Classroom comes in.
The Outdoor Classroom has included sessions on wildlife biology, history, wilderness survival, physical and cultural geography, mountain music, sculpture, drawing, photography, archeology, botany, engineering, and orienteering. Classes are taught by Camp Trinity and guest presenters.
Families can choose when to participate and pay just for the classes they attend or they can sign up for the entire 10-week semester at a steep discount (prices below). Those who sign up for the semester are not required to attend every session but can attend only the classes of most interest.
The sessions are for school-aged children (6-17). Depending on the subject, participants may be divided into groups by age.
Outdoor Classroom sessions are on Thursdays. The first session of the fall 2021 semester has been tentatively scheduled for Sept. 10 and will run 10 consecutive weeks, ending Nov. 18. The specific courses will be posted here in August.
STAY A LITTLE LONGER
Families are invited to stay overnight in cabins, tents or RVs and enjoy other activities at Camp Trinity: canoeing, fishing, archery, disc golf, softball or kickball, gaga ball, basketball, sand volleyball, ping pong, foosball, cornhole, horseshoes, campfires and board games. Lodging fees are modest.
The cost for a single session is $25 for the first child from each family, $10 for each additional child from the same family.
The cost for the entire semester is $125 for the first child from each family (half price), $50 for each additional child from the same family (half price).
