Courses are small to allow teachers to work closely with each student, maximizing their experience. Camp Credit is designed especially for high school students wishing to take a makeup or enrichment course. The afternoons and weekends offer opportunities for students to relax and to participate in activities that reinforce their confidence and academic focus. Students build academic skills as well as friendships and self-confidence. A guided study hall takes place nearly every evening with camp faculty present to assist with study time and homework. Both boys and girls are welcome in each of the camps however we will limit the enrollment of girls to that of a day or commuter student, no boarding. Available courses (students choose one): Algebra I Algebra II Biology I Chemistry English I English II Geometry Spanish *Camp Core Skills for Boys and Girls Grades 7-8 This integrated approach to education covers key academic skills and knowledge in math, science and reading. Students are taught using the best methods for middle school-aged students, engaging them in hands-on, interactive projects throughout the day. After class and on weekends, students are involved in fun activities that challenge their abilities. An evening guided study hall is conducted under the supervision of a teacher who can also assist students with their work.

SPECIAL NEEDS CAMPERS:

One Shepherd is ABSOLUTELY NOT a "troubled youth" program!

CAMP INSTRUCTIONAL ACTIVITIES OFFERED:
Team Sports, Academics, Adventure, and more. One Shepherd Is Leadership Education Through Adventure!

The camp includes an open-air latrine with flush toilets and showers. And three days per each weeklong semester are spent on patrol, sleeping on the ground, and eating MRE in primitive patrol bases.

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: One Shepherd was established in 1981. This leadership program is innovative in approach, and is unlike anything offered outside of the US Armed Forces. This is experiential learning through expeditionary adventure!

Our philosophy is simple. Fun. Mastery of any task or art requires the joy of learning. When learning is fun, a safe place to fail is established, and the result is that learners will continue to strive toward mastery.

Our staff officers and cadre instructors are military veterans and/or graduates of our leadership program. They are further validated through an in-house yearlong certification program with a specific focus on instructional methodology of the Experiential Learning Model (ELM) and Cognitive Apprenticeship Model (CAM).

Additionally, each cadre instructor has undergone a basic first aid and CPR course. Most have advanced first aid training such as the Combat Life Saver Course (CLS) or Emergency Medical Technician (EMT).
