Homeschool Day: Nature Day with Dodge Nature Center

This is the second of five homeschool programs Base Camp will host through 2019. If you cannot attend the dates offered, feel free to make a reservation for your own group – our minimum group size for most activities is just 10! Activity options are listed in our Youth Program Catalog found here:

Each program will begin at 9:00 AM and conclude at 2:00 PM. Check-in opens at 8:30 AM and pre-registration is strongly encouraged in guaranteeing your spot in the program. Parent/Adult registrants are not required to remain onsite, but are welcome to observe the activities throughout the day. For adults dropping youth off, we request that you accompany your children into the building for check-in (please do not let them walk up on their own). All youth participating in the program must have a waiver form signed by their parent or guardian (separate forms for each youth and each program). Participants must wear closed-toed shoes and comfortable clothing – dressing for the weather if your program includes outdoor activities. In addition, we recommend bringing a water bottle, bag lunch and a peanut-free snack if desired.
