What we're about
Welcome to OC Gifted Meet Up,
We are a warm community of homeschooling families with gifted children in Orange County.
Our mission is to provide opportunities for social and emotional support for our often highly sensitive, often creative and asynchronous (http://www.nagc.org/resources-publications/resources/social-emotional-issues/asynchronous-development) kids. I have found that when gifted kids come together with like minded peers who truly get and understand them- they often feel they finally belong for the first time in their young lives.

So many times parents tell me that they have been searching for a group like ours for a very long time!
It's my experience that homeschooling gifted parents need special support too- raising these often times quirky, emotionally intense, atypical learners can challenge us in ways we never expected and it is not unusual to feel unprepared and overwhelmed at the task.
OC Gifted Meet Up offers weekly park days, adventure club, classes, bookclubs, MNO, campouts, tween/teen socials, a handicraft fair and more.
Annual dues are only $35 for the entire family
This is an ACTIVE group! Please only join if you are ready to get involved in our homeschool community! We are looking for families who want to build lasting connections and deep friendships through regular attendance. Most of our activities are held on Wednesdays and Fridays. While we do not have an attendance policy, our group may not be a good fit if you have commitments on those days.
At times our group does have a waiting list as it has grown quite large. Please be patient and I will connect with you as I am able to do so.
