Homeschooling Days are new this year for Indian Lake Christian Camp! The day will start at drop off as we all gather in the outdoor chapel in warm weather or the dining hall in cooler weather. We will do a Bible story, praise and worship and then jump into our electives for the day. Each day we will do Gym class, Art class, music appreciation and just play!
Each day will focus on God's Classroom and will revolve around a nature journal. This journal will help your child learn, explore, create and document all that they are learning while at camp. We plan to teach on a different theme for each week and cover activities such as art, music, physical education and some writing. Journals and all materials will be provided.
You can choose to register for the full 9 week session for the best price. Or you can choose a 6 week or 3 week sessions. Camp Days are every Tuesday starting September 21st - November 16th. We welcome Elementary, Middle and High schoolers to the program!
Winter sessions will start January 4th (no class January 25th, because the staff will be attending a conference) and run through March 8th.
Spring sessions will be March 16th through May 10th.
