Is the HSC Conference right for you?

Are you new to homeschooling?  Do you want to learn more about getting started, legal options, and homeschooling methods and styles?  You will find speakers, discussions, extensive information and lots of opportunity to get all of your questions answered.

Do you have young children?  The conference has many ongoing activities and workshops for families with young children to enjoy.  We even offer a "Caregiver Pass" so that a parent can attend adult sessions while another adult has fun with the kids.  And grandparents attend FREE!  You'll be especially interested in activities like the Craft Zone, Art Studio and the Little Kids' Playroom.  Of course, there is swimming and dancing and all kinds of family fun.

Are you a continuing homeschooler?  If you've been homeschooling a while and you are looking for ways to enhance your homeschooling experience, you'll find all kinds of information and inspiration at the conference.  With over 125 workshops and speakers, you will especially enjoy the specialized speakers, in-depth discussions, and Exhibit Hall.

Do you want to enjoy a fantastic family vacation?  The conference is one of the few whole-family activities available that really satisfies family members of all ages.  Attendees range from little babies to grandparents!  There are special funshops designed for younger and older children, teens, and adults, and many activities for families to enjoy together.

Are you looking for networking, support, and community?  Join over a thousand children, teens, and adults as we learn, play, and dance together.  You will love being surrounded by close-knit happy families and will have plenty of opportunity to connect with others.

Are you a teen looking for peers who are interesting, creative, and a whole lot of fun?   The conference teen program is planned by and for teens, themselves, and is legendary throughout the homeschooling community.  There are workshops, games, discussions, dances, and so much more.  Many teens come back year after year and look forward to it as one of the highlights of their year.

The conference catalog accurately describes the experience as "celebrating family, friends, and learning in a joyous festival-like atmosphere."
