BIG OAK HOMESCHOOLERS is a diverse group of fun, friendly, welcoming unschoolers and gentle homeschoolers in the Sacramento area. Our active membership includes families with children ranging in age from infants to teens.
As a group we do not endorse any one resource, method or philosophy over another. Our members homeschool in a wide variety of styles, from unschooling, to independent study charter schools, to purchased curricula, and everything in between.
Our goals are: developing friendships amongst members (adults and children), organizing activities, sharing resources, creating liaisons with other groups, and providing information to those considering or new to homeschooling.
Although weekly Park Days are our main activity, members also organize learning opportunities, classes, “field trips,” volunteer activities, outdoor adventures, camping trips, video gaming parties, dances, movie screenings, and other social events for kids, teens, parents and families. We encourage our members to share their skills, talents, ideas, and resources. See our calendar for upcoming events.
