Outdoor School! For Homeschoolers*
Our 32nd Year – June 6-10, 2022
{Overnight Monday – Friday}
Drift Creek Camp – outside of Lincoln City, Oregon (For ages 9-16)
Kids Need Camp!!!

Outdoor learning sessions vary from year to year. But past classes have included fire building, outdoor cooking, compass course, survival and first aid. Activities vary from year to year but typically have archery, volleyball, and field sports. But an added bit of fun this year will be pellet guns and crossbows. This year’s special activity will be a hike to Drift Creek Falls.

Day classes and recreation events vary each year and are partially dependent on parents who share their teaching or coaching gifts with the group. We couldn’t do this without the participation of a few parents. We move camp from year to year to study different ecosystems and geologic areas of our great northwest. We strive to do different things each year because many kids come back. More details will follow about day classes offered this year. Accommodations: This year we are staying at beautiful Drift Creek Camp nestled in the coast range above Lincoln City. It features a large rustic lodge which is a dormitory and a cafeteria. Meals are prepared for us and also served in the lodge. (Please let us know your dietary needs.) 

Evening sessions are presented to build faith in the Bible’s teaching of the creation account and flood through compelling science presentations. This year our special speaker is Dr. Thomas Kindell.

We cap off each day with homegrown entertainment around the campfire and a time of worship and devotion. Kids have fun spending the week with new friends, and so do adults.

Intellectual struggles are one of the reasons why kids leave the church. They hear evolution nonsense taught everywhere. Then they lose confidence in the Bible. Studies are showing that a proper understanding of the Creation of the world and the Biblical flood of Noah’s day is key to retaining our kids in the faith. COME HEAR GREAT ANSWERS!!!

Make memories with your kids! PARENTS are strongly encouraged (but are not required) to attend as cabin counselors or teachers. We are always in need of Dads as counselors.

We know finances are tight for most, so we keep the costs as low as possible because we know you and your children will love this camp. It is so good for their social interaction with other homeschoolers that we have made it a “must” to attend with our large family for the past 24 years with no regrets. Now our grand-children are coming. It’s that good!

$225 for Students, $30 early bird discount if registered with $50 deposit by March 15th or $15 discount if registered by April 15th, $165 for adult volunteers. Deadline for registration May 22nd.
