    Charlotte Mason Boot Camp (Summer 2021 Session)

    $65.00

    REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED. Click here to join the waiting list for the next session of CMBC.

    Charlotte Mason Boot Camp is six days per week for six weeks. The first week is somewhat mild, but after that it’ll be pretty intense — requiring a fair amount of determination on your part.

    The goal for Charlotte Mason Boot Camp is confidence.

    You’re not going to know everything. Nobody does, of course, but even if they did, it took them longer than six weeks! However, big progress can be made concerning the basics if you work diligently for a six-week interval.

    CMBC is designed to bring Charlotte Mason’s principles down to the earth in your very own home. Many of the assignments will take principles that seem only theoretical and ask you to think deeply about applying them to your family — your ways of mothering and teaching.

    Registration will close Saturday, June  20, 2021 at midnight.

    Description

    The goal for Charlotte Mason Boot Camp is confidence.

    You’re not going to know everything. Nobody does, of course, but even if it were possible, it’d take longer than six weeks! However, big progress can be made concerning the basics if you work diligently for a six-week interval.

    CMBC is designed to bring Charlotte Mason’s principles down to the earth in your very own home. Many of the assignments will take principles that seem only theoretical and ask you to think deeply about applying them to your family — your ways of mothering and teaching.

    I want you to end feeling like you are capable of applying Charlotte Mason’s philosophy in your home. Charlotte Mason said that once we grasped her principles, ways of applying them would suggest themselves everywhere we looked. This can be you and me!

    Sometimes, we need to bounce ideas off of others, and that is why you need sign into the CMBC network regularly (preferably daily). We run the whole thing through a private CMBC Mighty Network so that you can support (and be supported by) your fellow campers and discuss your assignments.

     

    Gather your supplies!

    Charlotte Mason Boot Camp is six days per week for six weeks. The first week is somewhat mild, but after that it’ll be pretty intense — requiring a fair amount of determination on your part.

    The most important thing you will be asked to do is think. (It’s harder than it sounds.)

    In order to participate you will need:

    • Decent internet
      • Able to download workbooks
      • Able to watch short videos
      • Able to stream longer live video Q&A sessions
    • Adobe or some other PDF viewer
    • A printer
    • Basic school supplies (pens, pencils, etc.)
    • Time each day to work on the assignments (averaging about 30-45 minutes)

    The dates for Charlotte Mason Boot Camp (CMBC) Summer 2021 Session are June 21-July 31, 2021.

    Registration will close Saturday, June 20, 2021 at midnight.

     

    Charlotte Mason Boot Camp is divided topically into weeks.

    1. Introductions. We talk about who Miss Mason was, why we know who she is, and some other preliminaries.
    2. What is a child? We spend a week delving deeply into this.
    3. What is education? We look at Charlotte Mason’s answer to this question from many angles.
    4. What are our tools? Here’s where we talk about motivation and actually getting the work done.
    5. What are our curricula and practices?
    6. We end with a flurry of dotting i’s and crossing t’s and making plans for the future.

    Daily assignments —  videos to watch, articles to read, worksheets to guide you through a thinking process — are delivered in weekly guidebooks Monday mornings via the Charlotte Mason Boot Camp Mighty Network (when you register, you’ll receive information on how to log in to Camp). Discussion questions are posted inside the network each afternoon. Live Q&A sessions are hosted on Crowdcast and typically scheduled for Saturday mornings at 8am Pacific time (I only change the schedule if it’s unavoidable). The links to attend the Live Q&A sessions will be available inside the network in advance. Replays are available on Crowdcast immediately after the sessions are completed.

    Like anything else, you’ll get more out of it if you put more of yourself into it.
