Colorado Springs Homeschool Families is a meet-up group designed for adults providing their children with a home based education. We encourage members to bring their children to all meetings and events. CSHF is not affiliated with any school, curriculum, organization, establishment, or enterprise of any kind. We are a group of parents and caregivers that use social networking to enrich the home based education we provide for our children. This group is geared toward home educators who have children ranging in age from 1 to 17 years old. Our community's focus is to create family orientated social experiences, educational opportunities, and to support one another in our homeschooling journeys. Children attending CSHF events must be accompanied by an adult over the age of 18. All members are expected to practice basic internet safety skills and use good judgment. We facilitate daily, weekly, or monthly social opportunities, group field trips, educational activities, support, and resource sharing. We value and seek out diversity in our members. As a collective unit, we do not subscribe to one homeschooling style or method over another and our premise is not religious in nature. Each member has their own preferences and we welcome them all. We are an all inclusive group. Tolerance, respect, and appreciation of diversity is an absolute must! Days, times, and nature of our gatherings will be determined by the group as a whole. All members are encouraged to take a turn organizing meet-ups for the group. Any fees associated with family field trips or activities are the responsibility of each participating family. Most of our gatherings are free and participation is always optional. Locations will vary. CSHF is a great way to connect with local homeschooling families and make friends. Please join us!
