Homeschool Connection
is an inclusive, secular community of families with children learning at home on the Kitsap Peninsula. This Yahoo Group is intended as administrative support to a face-to-face homeschool community, not the primary community. We gather for monthly activity days, park days, and field trips - as well as special events like family potlucks, dances, and talent shows.
Our governing principles are safety, respect, cooperation, and FUN! Group decisions are by consensus and all members are encouraged to participate in the process. We welcome diversity and trust that our members are respectful and tolerant of each other's religious and political beliefs, life choices, and homeschool style.

Kitsap Homeschool Friends
We are a social group of homeschooling parents and families. Activities include play dates, field trips, parties, "Mom's Night Out", "Fun for the Family" nights and more. The purpose of this group is for local homeschooling (and unschooling) families to come together, offering support to one another as we encourage our children to learn and develop friendships. We welcome both those who are new to homeschooling as well as those who have been doing it for years.
