Join us for our (hopefully) first annual Homeschool Moms Retreat!
Date: August 5th-7th, 2022
Location: Cabin in Young Harris, GA
Who is invited: Homeschool moms looking for encouragement.
Activities: The purpose of this weekend is twofold: (1) a time of rest, rejuvenation, and encouragement before we start our school year, and (2) give us a chance to plan our upcoming year. For planning, we’ll be going through two books: Teaching from Rest by Sarah Mackenzie and Plan Your Year by Pam Barnhill. We’ll be focusing on the broad picture of why we’re homeschooling and brainstorming trouble areas.
But I don’t need to plan! That’s fine! You can participate as much or as little as you want. There are plenty of trails for walking or you could go to a separate area of the house.
I’m interested, but I am too old to be sharing a bed. Me too, friend. That’s why I looked specifically for a place that had separate beds for all of us. There are a total of 10 beds, so we’ll take the first 10 people to sign up! (You can see pictures of the sleeping arrangements at the bottom of this page.) Please note: one of the beds is a futon in the downstairs common area. If we’re at 10 people and you have a friend who wants to come and the two of you *want* to share the queen bed, then by all means, join us! If more than 9 people come, I will discount your total by $20 if you share a bed or take the futon.
I’m afraid to ask – what is the cost of this fantastic weekend? That will depend on how many people sign up. If ten ladies come, then the total cost will be $80/person. If only seven ladies come, then it will be $115/person. If only five come… then I might look into a smaller/cheaper location. :) We’ll also be splitting the food so be looking for that information later this summer.
When do I need to decide? The weekend is first come, first served! There is space for 10 total women. I will update here if it’s getting close to filling up.
