      Dear NW Creation Newsgroup Members,

      If you or someone you know might be interested in a high quality
      hands-on Outdoor School/ Science Camp in about one month, read on...

      Creation Science Homeschool Outdoor School / Science Camp: Sept 5-9,
      2008 (Mount St. Helens area)
      September 5 to 9 2008 [Friday noon to Tuesday
      noon]
      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.
      Helens.

      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.

      SCIENCE AREAS Geology; Volanoes, Erosion, Astronomy; River and stream
      life; Rockets; Friction; Leverage; Knots; Fire Building; Ornithology;
      Animal Kingdom; Cycle; Interaction; Forestry; Classification;
      Dinosaurs (classes & recreation vary with available instructors)

      RECREATION Archery; Crafts; Hiking Trails; Large gym for basketball &
      volleyball; Large field for soccer & nature games; Fun skits during
      evening campfire.

      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!
