BASEcamp is the summer camp version of Bachman’s famous learning philosophy and offers students a unique, important experience as they develop into functioning adults.

At BASEcamp, the campus is our classroom. With 188-acres, the options are limitless. Our dedicated and fantastically trained staff is a top reason why we excel. Our facilities, including outdoor fun at the pool and the large lake, offer fantastic opportunity for learning and personal development.

BASEcamp serves students with learning differences, like Dyslexia, Dyscalculia, Dysgraphia, Nonverbal Learning Disorder (NLD), and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder/ Attention Deficit Disorder (ADHD, ADD), who learn best in a non-traditional environment that is challenging, achievement-oriented and individualized. The typical Bachman student is of average to above average intelligence.

Students at BASEcamp are empowered and invigorated by our slate of classes. Each day the students take classes in areas of study we call our Core Curriculum. Our classes are small, and feature hands-on learning with short, intensive, activity- and project-driven, and designed for our target students and their learning capabilities.

Core Curriculum:
Equestrian Studies
Veterinary Science
Wood Working
Creative Arts
Leadership Skills
Personal Development

Mission: The mission of BASEcamp is to empower students who have learning differences to develop the skills and values necessary for success in our global community.
