This post is part of a series titled, “Homeschool Q&A.” The series features questions we’ve received from parents on a variety of topics–and the answers!
Q. I’m new to homeschooling and am looking for activities for my high school student. What is the age range for the field trips HEAV sponsors?
A. HEAV-sponsored field trips are designed for ALL homeschooling families and are great for students of all ages. Lots of times dads even take off from work to come with their families. The field trips can be a great way to meet other homeschoolers.
We work toward scheduling a variety of field trips in different areas of the state. Destinations have included a science museum, various historical sites, a nautical museum, an art museum, an aquarium, the State Fair of Virginia, an amusement park, and many other locations. The field trips often include special educational programs for different age groups, but the site staff expects parents and siblings to attend together.
If you would like to attend, simply register as indicated for each event. HEAV sets up the field trips and negotiates for the best educational discount we can get for you—some events are even FREE!
Look for information about upcoming events in our weekly Virginia Homeschool Update. You can always go to www.heav.org and click on “Events” to see a schedule any time you’re ready to plan a fun day. We would love to have you join us!
