4-H Outdoor School - September 16-18, 2013
The 4-H Homeschool Outdoor School is a program sponsored by Polk County 4-H and Polk Christian Home Educators and is open to all youth in grades 5-8. You do not need to be a 4-H member. (We will be having homeschooled high school age youth to serve as counselors. If you are interested in counseling, contact us.)
The program is designed to give youth hands-on outdoor learning experiences with natural science, pond study, forestry, outdoor cooking, leather craft, wind energy, archery, animal habitat, survival skills and more. We will have featured presentations
and campfire activities. Free time activities include canoes, swings, crafts, archery, soccer and more.
Camp participants will stay in Cottages that have four bedrooms, each containing two sets of bunk beds with mattresses. The cottages have a common area and bathrooms with private showers. Cabins may also be used. This beautifully wooded location is just 6 miles from downtown Salem.
Cost for the overnight camp is $40 per youth/adults if registered by Sept. 1st. Additional $10.00 late fee added Sept. 1st and after.
Partial Scholarships available upon request.
