Vista Hills Homeschool Ministry is proud to present a Weekend of Workshops for kids, teens, and adults of all ages, to be held the weekend of August
​ 11th and 12th 2017​
​ (Specific schedule below) ​

For the kids, this weekend should really be called the Weekend of Funshops!  Our purpose is to expose kids and teens to as many different disciplines as possible.  Our planned classes include everything from art to engineering, from leather working to 
​line ​
dancing, from self defense to
paracord weaving and so much more!  We believe that life long passions and talents begin with a small taste of a skill or interest that leaves our children wanting to know more and we are hoping to expose your children to many interesting things!

For the parents, we are planning some deep, nitty gritty training in both Biblical Parenting and Homeschooling.  For some classes, like "Basic Christianity" and "Why You Can Trust The Bible," teens will be taught alongside the parents. We know that many parents struggle with how to discuss these subjects with their teens and there is always more we can learn about the subjects ourselves.  We hope to give you some solid information that will enrich this conversation in your family at home.  One of our classes, "Meeting God Together in His Word" taught by Becky Powers, is a hands-on class involving both parents and children. 

All of our classes will inform, encourage, and enlighten.  They are there to help you to think differently about what "school" and "faith" can mean to you.  There is no "baby food" in these classes -- they are full on "meat," as the Bible says.  Most of us are saved Christians and these classes are designed for YOU.  We firmly believe in God's call for the older women to disciple and mentor the younger and for the younger women to be humble enough to listen to the wisdom of their elders.  If you think that homeschooling is just about teaching your children to read, we hope that you come out of these workshops with a much broader view of what is possible, along with a firmer resolve and a more profound purpose. 

​Friday evening after the workshops there will be an opportunity to meet and chat with the speakers​
​ This will give you the opportunity to ask questions and get to know them personally.
Any child who will not behave or obey teachers will be escorted to their parents.  There will be no refunds if a child misses a class due to their behavior.

Parents MUST attend the conference with their children.  Parents may attend alone - but children may not. 

Please bring a sack lunch, in a plainly marked "family" bag to avoid cross contamination or allergy problems.  Parents will be responsible for their own family at lunch time, including cleaning up after them and delivering them back to class after lunch. 

​Children should wear play clothes that you don't mind if they get messy.  ​

​​Early bird tickets (purchased by July 31st) will be $10.00 per person no matter the age (4 and under are free in the nursery). 
Dads are free!!
After July 31st, ticket prices will increase to $20.00 per person.
