If you are looking for a way to connect with other unschoolers, here are three summer camp options to check out.
Not Back to School Camp is the original unschoolers camp begun by Grace Llewellyn, author of The Teenage Liberation Handbook: How to Quit School and Get a Real Life and Education. They have been providing summer camp opportunities for unschoolers since 1996. In 2011 they have scheduled two summer camp sessions in Oregon and two in Vermont.
A new option is the East Tennessee Unschooled Summer Camp, which has a session scheduled for August 14 – 21, 2011. 2010 was their first year of operation. You can read a review of the East Tennessee Unschooled Summer Camp at A Dispatch From Planet Unschooling.
If you have participated in one of these camps in the past, please share your thoughts and experiences with us.
