Camp is a great way to experience Self-Directed Education without having to make a commitment for a full school year!
Your child will come to ALCNO with their own projects and questions in mind. They will have the opportunity to explore those with or without assistance, as well as participate in activities offered by our facilitators and other children.
Even though self-directed learning has been around for as long as human societies exist, a lot of families are afraid to take the leap, fearing that without conventional schooling, their children won't be well equipped for life - present and future.
Here's the opportunity to have your child experience it without making a strong commitment: we're offering camp during school breaks (summer, fall, and spring).
Your child will come to ALCNO with their own interests and projects in mind. They will have the opportunity to explore those with or without assistance, as well as participate in activities offered by our facilitators and other children.
Here are a few ideas of activities that can be offered thanks to materials on site and skilled facilitators: gardening, ballroom dancing, storytelling, mural painting, math games, foreign language, cooking, improv, movie making, arts and crafts, coding, science projects, sewing.
Outings possibilities: museums, parks and playgrounds, beach, public pool, Flying Squads, etc.
Because we believe that informal play is part of the growing process, your child will not be forced to participate in any activity. We trust children for choosing activities that will help them grow and keep the joy of learning intact.
