Back to Homeschool Days 2022

Celebrate the start of the new school year!

HOME's September Back to Homeschool Days provide an opportunity for you to connect with hundreds of homeschoolers from around the state to celebrate the start of another homeschool year.     


HOME Hikes!

This year, HOME leaders will be scheduling hikes in different areas of the state to help your family experience the great beauty and diversity of Maine and its habitats.


Did you know that one hike can cover all of the subjects required by Maine's homeschool law? Use the HOME Hikes unit study to find out how. In this study, you will discover how a hike in a local preserve or state park can be a lot more than a physical education activity in your homeschooling day. You’ll look at geography, literature, science, and much, much more! 


Upcoming Dates and Locations!

September 5 at 11:30am - Taft Point, Gouldsboro

We will hike down to the beach for a picnic lunch and tidal explorations. Then we'll hike back up on another part of the trail. Parking is limited so carpool if you can. About 2 miles of easy hiking total.

September 8 at 10:00am - Maiden Cliff Trail, Maiden Cliff Rd., Lincolnville

Plan to bring a picnic lunch to enjoy as you gaze out at the beautiful views over Megunticook Lake.

This is an easy to moderate hike for anyone 5 and older, younger if they are used to hiking.

There are picnic tables, so plan to bring a lunch and extend your stay after the hike.
