Basecamp 2021

JANUARY 21-25, 2021


Five days.
Three experts.
Three critical skills.
Endless applications.

Everything you’ve ever wanted is sitting on the other side of fear.

— George Addair

Master Three Fundamentals



Time is the only resource that is completely irreplaceable. Learning the keys to managing your time effectively makes you better in every area of life.



Anytime you're somewhere doing something (yes, it's that broad) you're taking care of tasks. Managing your tasks well makes you a more capable friend, volunteer, grocery-shopper, and employee.



Everything we do is related to relationships. We work with people. We befriend people. We help people. We live with people. We exist in community with people.


Jonathan Brush

President & CEO

Jonathan Brush is the President and CEO of Unbound, a homeschool graduate, and a homeschool dad of six. He worked for nine years as a Director of Admissions for a private, liberal arts college, and then spent over ten years working in non-traditional higher education.

Jonathan loves Unbound and Unbound students and dreams every single day about new ways to connect them to each other. He gets to work with the world’s best team and the most amazing student body in the history of the world (which is just as awesome as it sounds), and field questions about Rule 4 violations (ask an Unbound student to explain). Jonathan and his family make their home in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia.

Megan Weber


Megan Weber is the COO of Unbound. She is a 2014 Unbound graduate who fell in love with her college experience as she earned her BSBA. She enjoys being the ‘get it done’ force behind new ideas and loves interacting with students online and in person. When she’s not planning events, creating spreadsheets, or keeping the Unbound team on track, she can usually be found spending time with friends, mastering a new skill, or booking a flight for her next adventure.

Ben Billups


Ben Billups is the CMO of Unbound. After graduating in 2016 from the Unbound program with a degree in Economics, Ben served as a policy analyst for the Texas Legislature, the Student Communications Director for Unbound, and, most recently, as the Marketing Manager for a landmark statewide news organization in Texas.

Ben is an obsessive learner, a native Texan, an award-winning filmmaker, and a poor practitioner in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.

Is Basecamp affected by COVID-19?

As we plan for Basecamp, we are keeping a close eye on the spread of the disease as well as state regulations in Florida related to COVID-19.

The safety of our students is our number one priority. Over the course of Student Life’s near ten-year history, we have successfully protected attendees from harm with the hard work of our staff and the responsible behavior of our students. In the Fall of 2020, we held four regional events with safety practices that resulted in zero reports from students of new cases.

Our staff and medical advisors will keep a close eye on the situation as it continues to unfold and we will apprise students of ways they need to prepare for this event as it draws near.

What’s included in the price?

All your food, lodging, speakers, and activities are included in the registration cost. So, besides plane tickets or gas to get there, all the essentials and unique event specifics are covered in your registration cost.

What airport should I fly into?

Gainesville Regional Airport (GNV).

Is there a shuttle to the event?

Yes! You will receive more information about booking a ticket for the shuttle closer to the event.

What time should I arrive?

If you’re driving, plan to arrive no later than 5pm EST on Thursday, January 21st. If you’re flying, be sure to schedule your flight to arrive by 3pm EST on Thursday, January 21st and to depart after 3pm EST on Monday, January 25th.

What should I bring?

Food and housing (including bedding) are all provided. You’ll want to pack all other personal items, but we’ll keep you updated as we get closer to the event (a packing list is coming soon to an inbox near you.)

Will I have time for classes?

There will be a couple of hours of free-time in the evenings, but the mornings and afternoons are pretty jampacked. School definitely shouldn’t keep you from coming, but we’d encourage you to off-load your week as much as possible. Just like APEX and Capstone, you’ll get out of Basecamp what you put into it. So. Bring your all and you’ll get immeasurable benefits out of it.

What about food allergies?

We are equipped to accommodate just about any food allergy you might have. We’ll ask you for more information when you register, but if you want more details ahead of time, just shoot Megan Weber an email with your questions at

Is Basecamp open to Alumni?

Yes! Basecamp is designed to be applicable professionally and personally whether you are an Unbound graduate, student, or prospective student. Improving your ability to manage time, tasks, and relationships is always relevant. If it hasn't been for you, please let us know immediately. We’d like to do a case study.

About Unbound  

Conventional education keeps students at their desks, actively undermines their faith in Christ, and forces most to start their life in debt. A real alternative is desperately needed.

At Unbound, we provide you with the tools, community, and experiences that enable you to live an extraordinary life for Christ—and you can earn an accredited bachelor’s degree at the same time.

Ascend, our flagship college program, is an intense experience designed to catalyze, enable, and energize homeschoolers. Ascend students don’t just graduate with easily-transferable college credits, they graduate as leaders and innovators with a world-class Christian community that has their back.
