Creation Science Homeschool Outdoor School / Science Camp: Sept 5-9,
2008 (Mount St. Helens area)
September 5 to 9 2008 [Friday noon to Tuesday
Our 19th year!
$140 for campers; $90 for adults
Held at Cispus Learning Center near Mt St Helens, WA
Designed for age 9 to age 16
Cispus Learning Center is located in deep forest two hours north of
Portland, near Mt St Helens. It is a wonderful facility for children
and adults with many miles of hiking trails, creeks, open meadows and
comfortable modern facilities. The heated cabins have bathrooms with
showers. A full size gym and a modern dining facility are just a
short walk from the cabins. The 2008 camp theme will be VOLCANOES and
campers will participate in day trips to the Blast Zone of Mount St.
Homeschool Science Camp is committed to teaching students about the
wonders of natural things and events, in the context of a "hands-on"
outdoor classroom. With a Biblical perspective and an emphasis on
creation, campers learn about science in fun, innovative ways. The
campers will develop a thoughtful appreciation for and a knowledge of
the world that God created for our benefit. They will learn more
about God's handiwork and gain a proper understanding of the amazing
interdependence of life in our universe. We provide a positive group
living experience with opportunities to meet new Christian friends
who also homeschool. Individuals will develop sound health habits and
attitudes by providing and maintaining a clean, safe, and healthy
environment in all areas of camp.
A typical camp day includes 2 morning science classes, 2 afternoon
recreation periods, evening creation lecture, campfire, 3 great meals
and lots of supervised fun.

Outdoor School Science Camp was started by Christian homeschool
parents who wanted their children to have an Outdoor School learning
experience in the safety of other Christian homeschooled children and
adults. All staff including the director are volunteers- no one is
paid. All staff are carefully screened for integrity and Christian
maturity. A typical camp will see 100 children and 25 or more adults
in attendance. Science Camp is non-denominational and is for
Christians who believe in creation, love science and enjoy the
outdoors. As always, PARENTS are strongly encouraged (but are not
required) to attend as cabin counselors or teachers in areas of
expertise. A $50 deposit will hold a place at camp. Balance is due by
August 15. A full set of forms (with more information!) will be sent
when the deposit is received. Our website contains all the
information on the forms we normally mail so you may print them off
and save us all some postage!
