Conestoga wagons, roaring campfires, hot air balloons, trampoline acrobats, pony rides, pedal boats, and more! Come join us in October for our Pioneer Campout in Georgia!
When: October 20-21
Where: The Rock Ranch, GA
Registration Deadline: August 31
We’ll sleep in Conestoga wagons and enjoy campfires, hot air balloons, trampoline acrobats, and most of what the ranch has to offer! (For an additional fee, you can also enjoy zip lines, a rock climbing wall, and a carousel ride.)
The wagons have eight bunks each, so if your family has fewer people, you’ll bunk with others (if you know other families, I can bunk you together, but register early!). If you have fewer than eight in your family, you can pay extra to have a wagon to yourself if we have space available. If we run out of wagon space, families can bring tents (costs less than the wagons).
I’ll forward a list of recommended gear to everyone before our campout. Firewood, porta-potties, lanterns, picnic tables, a folding table stocked with paper towels, cups, hand washing water, and drinking water will be provided.
We’ll arrive on Friday by 4:00 pm and set up camp, enjoy dinner around the campfire, play games around the wagons, and enjoy meeting other homeschooling families. We’ll check out of camp by 11:00 am on Saturday and then enjoy the ranch’s Up, Up, and Away festivities, watch trampoline acrobats perform, take our turn on bungee trampolines, and more!
Cost and What’s Included
The cost for wagon campers is $50 per person ages 3 and up (children ages 2 and under must share a bunk with a family member). This covers the campout, entry to the ranch for the Up, Up, and Away events, and most activities listed above (some things like the zip line, carousel, and rock climbing wall cost extra).
No meals are provided. You can eat dinner before you arrive on Friday, or bring your food and cook over the campfires. You’ll need to bring breakfast for Saturday morning. You can eat at the ranch for lunch and dinner on Saturday.
You’ll have a sleeping mat in the wagon, but you must bring your own bedding/sleeping bags and pillows.
You can bring tents if you prefer them, or if/when we run out of wagon space. The cost for tent campers is $25 per person ages 3 and up. (We must fill all the wagons before we can bring tents, so you may have to be waitlisted for a while.)
