Group Trips and Events

We coordinate group trips and events for homeschooling families in South Carolina and beyond. We’ve enjoyed trips to Washington DC, New York City, Disney World, Italy, and Alaska, as well as field trips, sleepovers, and camps at historic sites, flight schools, space centers, ships, museums, state parks, aquariums, mountains, and beaches.

Most of our trips are open to everyone. Some trips are discounted for members, and a few are members-only. Please read each trip’s description for details about each event.

Here’s what’s coming up for 2015-2016 (trips are added as details are finalized, so check back often):
