As our beautiful California weather turns warmer and the days grow longer, homeschooling families across the state are gathering together for one of the most treasured rituals of Californians – the family campout.

Groups across the state are offering homeschooling families the invaluable opportunity to share stories, discuss homeschooling resources, and participate in some seriously fun family bonding time. Whether on the sparkling beaches, in the pristine mountains, or in the colorful deserts – the perfect family campout is out there, waiting for you.

From June 18-24, 2018 the Homeschool Association of California,, will be at Mono Hot Springs in the Sierra National Forest high in the Sierra Nevada. Throughout the camp, the south fork of the San Joaquin River runs through and the HAC has reserved several tent sites and sites where a limited number of small trailers and small RVs are accommodated, however no hookups are available.

For families more interested in a beach campout, the California Homeschool Network,,  will be at Carpinteria State Park on Sunday October 14 until Thursday October 18 (4 nights). CHN members only pay $45 per person (under 3 is free) and the price includes all 4 nights.

And in one of the most beautiful of California jewels, families can camp 30 miles north of Eureka at Patricks Point State Park from September 9-14, where HSC will be holding a family camp.
