Monthly Sports & Fitness Activities

Come to socialize, exercise and have some fun!


Join other homeschoolers throughout the school year for HOME's monthly skating, bowling, hikes, rock climbing, gym and swim sessions! These activities are exclusively for homeshoolers, and have been an overwhelming success. Homeschool kids have fun and stay fit. Homeschool moms spend some time encouraging and supporting one another, too!
