HSC Campouts

New and experienced campers welcome!

When: May 4-9, 2014

Where: Refugio State Beach Group Site Bouchard 23 miles north of Santa Barbara

Cost: $47/person

Refugio State Beach offers excellent coastal fishing as well as trails and picnic sites. Palm trees planted near Refugio Creek give a distinctive look to the beach and camping area.  This has been a favorite site of our campers for many years.  
Come play with us at this beautiful campground which overlooks the beach (just steps to the water) and enjoy all the fun and creativity of your fellow homeschoolers.  Includes sea, sand, sun as well as campfires, ocean kayaking and nightly potlucks.

HSC has arranged for a day of kayaking at the beach! All campers will have the opportunity to kayak. The cost is included in your campout fee. Details at the morning meeting.  


Step 1: Pre-Registration
Fill out the simple pre-registration form  After you fill out the pre-registration form, you will either receive a confirmation email with instructions on how to complete registration for the campout or you will receive notification that you are on the waiting list. (These are not automated, it might take a few days.)

Step 2: Registration
You will register your own child. This will be explained in your confirmation email after you pre-register.

  • Complete the Pre-Registration form for your child
  • Register your own child. No one else can register your child including the family with whom your child will be camping.
  • Complete and print TWO Medical Release Forms. One copy will be given to the family who will be chaperoning your child and one copy will be given to the host.

  • Registration Cancellation-
    We do not issue any refunds unless the campout is full and we are replacing you with someone from the waiting list. If you cannot come to the campout, you must contact the Camp Coordinator by April 26th.  If possible, we will transfer your space to the next family on the waiting list and issue you a refund minus a $15 transfer fee.

    Campers on Individual Sites-
    Have your own site but still want to be in on the group fun?  We will still need some forms and a participation fee. If you are not camping on HSC's site, and you or you children will be spending any time at our group site, please complete the pre-registration form. When you pre-register, indicate your camp site number in the space for car license plate.  Once you have completed the pre-registration form, you will be asked to complete the Liability and Anti-Bullying forms and pay the $25 per family participation fee. This must be done by Friday, May 2. For those who plan to kayak, the cost is an additional $20 per person.

    Visiting for a day-
    We love to have you! Please let the Host or the Camp Coordinator know and we will explain to you how to complete your required forms online before your visit.  No fee required.
