Summer is drawing to a close and for many of us, our daily and weekly routines will be adjusting to a new schedule.
One tradition I've always enjoyed that marks the transition from summer to fall is the Not Back to School picnic. Kick off your year by joining local homeschoolers and potential homeschoolers at Freedom Park (the park at Terry's Corner on the north end of Camano Island) for a brown bag picnic on Monday, September 12 (the Monday after Labor Day), from noon to 3:00. New families are welcome!
To keep up with SCHA activities this year, sign up for the newsletter (see the link on the left hand sidebar). Instead of weekly Park Days, which are too often derailed by unpredictable weather, we're going to organize park and skating outings as the weather agrees and families are available.
Some of our kids are also getting older and they are going to take the reins in organizing events. I am hoping to set up a tour at Shambala, a permaculture farm on the north end of the island, within the next few weeks, but after that the kids, with some parental support, will be organizing field trips.
Stanwood Camano Homeschool Adventures
Stanwood Camano Homeschool Adventures is a support group for the whole family.
What is a support group? We get together for park days, blueberry picking, visits to Cama Beach. If you want to plan a field trip, great, go for it! If you just show up once a year, we'll be glad to see you. We're friendly homeschoolers supporting each other, no stress, no commitment.
