Home School Resources

YMCA Camp Lincoln works cooperatively with home school groups to provide social and educational opportunities for youth and their families. Year-round nature, adventure, and life-skills based programming is provided by experienced facilitators. Classroom lessons are reinforced through exploration of the outdoors and sharing with others. Through extensive high ropes, challenge course, orienteering, nature writing, pond ecology, snowshoeing, and other educational activities, outdoor learning is enjoyable,

As a part of our mission to provide programming for all, YMCA Camp Lincoln is driven to organize these opportunities for home school groups. Quality programs and learning opportunities are available through traditional programs. New programs can be created and customized to fit specific curriculum needs. Any subject can be covered with unique hands on learning.

Experiences can be tailored to fit a one-day experience, a multi-day program or an overnight adventure. Each YMCA Camp Lincoln experience is unique with lasting effects.
