Homeschool Program

Camp Ondessonk is excited to offer monthly programs for homeschool students on the second Tuesday of every month. In this program, we invite homeschool students to come together for a day that combines educational lessons with outdoor and recreational adventures. Our Homeschool Programs will allow for learning through doing.

Most Homeschool Programs will start at 10 am and conclude at 2:30 pm. Students will learn a specific nature education concept in the morning, such as Geology, Ecology, Equestrian Science, Pond Studies, and more. In the afternoon, students will participate in an activity that connects to the educational lesson from the morning; for example, if we learn about geology in the morning, we will rock climb in the afternoon. Between sessions, students will receive a 30–45-minute lunch break.

The base rate for this program is $30 per student, and for an additional $10 per person, Camp Ondessonk will provide a picnic lunch. Each group of students must have at least one parent with them for the entire program. Parents/guardians may attend the program for free but must pay $10 if they wish to have the Ondessonk picnic lunch.
