2019 Theme: Wondrous Oceans – Marine and Oceanic Studies
Join us this fall as we explore the wonders of the ocean! Discover more about the creatures of the Pacific Ocean, from the smallest plankton to the biggest whales, and the ocean they call home. Explore the local tide pools and get sandy during classes on the beach. Students will engage in hands-on, outdoor experiences in a variety of coastal ecosystems. Each class is uniquely created to engage students (and parents) of all ages, as they showcase God’s amazing creation!
Families will have the opportunity to laugh, learn, and explore together during their week at camp. This week-long, overnight program offers engaging science classes for students 5-17
years of age, evening worship, and a variety of classic camp activities such as boating, archery, and arts and crafts.
A Word to Parents: Camp isn’t just for kids! During the week you will be encouraged during a daily, kid-free, parent workshop. There will also be evenings set aside for moms and dads to gather together to fellowship after the kids have gone to bed.
Outdoor school offers homeschool students and their families opportunities to explore God’s creation through a variety of interactive lessons and outdoor adventures. This unique camp program offers experiences for the entire family to enjoy, with age-appropriate classes designed for students K-12, parent sessions, and plenty of traditional camp activities for families to experience throughout the day.
At Twin Rocks Friends Camp’s outdoor school for homeschool families there is always something new to explore, as we discover God’s creation through science. Students and parents will learn side-by-side from experts and specialists in an array of scientific and environmental fields.
Throughout each week families will also have the chance to have a classic camp experience outside of the classroom during afternoon freetime, with many fun activities to choose from. The camp has plenty to do and see throughout the week, giving families the chance explore the lake by boat, hike Charlotte’s Mountain, play on the beach, create a keepsake in Arts and Crafts, putt a round of Mini Golf, and much more every day of outdoor school. Twin Rocks outdoor school traditions like Gizmo boards, scriiggleboggle (a Twin Rocks favorite), and scavenger hunts are also available throughout the week.
Families can choose from two separate weeks of the program and still expect the same great teaching, excellent food and accommodations, and passionate staff and volunteers. We look forward to exploring God’s wondrous oceans with you.
