Annual Homeschool Picnic and Reunion

LEARN hosts a family picnic and reunion each summer.  Our goal is to have fun while maintaining connection with those families who have made LEARN a part of their lives regardless of whether or not they have continued to homeschool. Graduates and their families are welcome to attend free. Nonmembers are welcome to attend for an additional fee.


Teen events

The LEARN Teen group holds a variety of weekly social gatherings as well annual formal and informal dances.  Members are invited to stay up to date about Teen activities through an email loop designated for this information. Youth can begin to participate in Teen activities one month prior to their 13th birthday.


Microscope and Stereoscope Rental

LEARN owns a microscope, stereoscope, and some accessories that are available to members to rent for $10/week with a $150 deposit.  Contact kclearn@gmail.com if you are interested in renting either piece of equipment. Rental is to full LEARN members only


Graduation

Each May, LEARN offers a memorable, personalized commencement ceremony to honor those transitioning into adulthood. Friends and family gather together to celebrate with those wishing to take part in what, for many, is a cultural rite of passage.  A reception follows the commencement ceremony.  Nonmembers are welcome to participate in the graduation ceremony for an additional fee.  


LEARN Gathering and Classes

The weekly gathering and classes are held Wednesdays from 10 am - 3 pm.  The whole family is welcome to come hang out.  There are 2 ten week sessions offered each year - Fall and Spring. Membership in LEARN is not required for participation in this activity although a non-member fee will be assessed.

LEARN offers weekly classes on a wide variety of topics and interests. Some are professionally led, some are lay led, some are cooperatively led. Past offerings have included art, dance, music, creative writing, science, history, individual and group sports, and finance. Parents are encouraged to offer classes in their area of interest, although participation int he Gathering or classes does not require a that parent's offer anything. The class fee is determined by the convener.  This is an all ages gathering for homeschool enrichment and socializing.

A few reminders:

Due to severe allergies please DO NOT BRING PEANUTS/PEANUT CONTAINING ITEMS

No play weapons are allowed at the gathering or classes.

This is not a drop off event.
