Summer fun starts here...
Our Summer Camps are specifically designed for kids ages 5 through 12 years old, with Teen Camps launching soon. All children who attend will need to bring their own lunch. We will have super fun and healthy snacks available at our snack bar included in the cost of camp. Our summer camps will include daily activities, crafts, structured & unstructured play, and field experiences each week corresponding to a different theme designed to ignite learning, curiosity, and community. Students can choose from 1 day - 4 days, or attend the whole week!
We have intentionally designed classrooms, an engaging lunch area, outdoors play space, and extremely qualified instructors. We will have a weekly field experience with expert professionals. Our staff is carefully selected professionals who are extremely passionate about pouring into your children. We run criminal and child maltreatment background checks upon employment and our goal is to create the utmost safe and supporting environment for your child to have a blast this summer.
Our 30,000 square foot facility is uniquely equipped with 10 classrooms, two lunch areas, a study hall, reading lounge, a balcony overlooking Bentonville, and two community game spaces in our Social Homeschoolers Network area. Our upstairs area has board games, ping pong tables, pool tables, arcade games, air hockey, and foosball tables. The downstairs area has board games, lego tables, large block and manipulative area for constructive play, and two huge playhouses to encourage imagination and dramatic play. Our art studio is fully equipped with an extensive art educational library as well as ample space to create. Our science lab is ideal for experiments and our two kitchens are fully equipped. We have two fenced outdoor spaces for free play, as well as outdoors sporting equipment, and a large nature area for outdoor exploration and discovery.
We currently have Week Long Day Camps with day camp options, both options with limited enrollment and due to the demand, we expect they will fill up fast. SHN Summer Camps are open to all youth and enrollment is on a first come, first serve basis. Send your child to the SHN Summer Camp and give yourself a break while your kids have the best summer ever!!!!

We will have biology/science lessons, learn survival and safety tips, make our own survival shelter, go on a treasure hunt, make camp necklaces, make our own walking sticks, and much more. Our field experiences will be hands on learning from several outdoors professionals. Students will get an immersive experience with learning archery, BB guns, backpacking, foraging, and survival, so come ready to be outside!
WEEK 2: JULY 5th - JULY 9th
Join us as we dive into the animal world! Each day we will look at different types of animals and even meet some face to face. We will visit the countries they live in, learn about their habitats, dig up fossils, and learn what it takes to work at a Zoo. We will do fun science experiments, like exploding elephant toothpaste, and dissecting owl pellets. We will find answers to questions like, how do Artic animals stay warm? or How do Penguins stay dry? We will learn about cold blooded animals by making color changing playdough and use our investigation skills to track down animals.

ALOHA! We will be making some big waves at this week’s camp! From ultimate water and color wars, to exploding volcanos. We will make edible leis, ocean slime, make our own tie dye t-shirts, seashell necklaces, lava lamps and much more. We will become Hawaiian chefs and cook up some famous Hawaiian dishes. Each day we will learn a Hawaiian word-of-the day, take some Hula lessons, learn about the Polynesian culture and end our fantastic week with a HUGE Luau.
