This question at first surprised me. But after thinking it through I realized why. In the world of homeschooling, extracurricular activities are a way of life. That is what really makes homeschooling, homeschooling. In addition to academics, we homeschoolers have the opportunity to, day in and day out, participate in tons of extracurricular activities. From field trips to our local landfill, to homeschool camp-outs on our local mountain, everyday is a learning opportunity. However, I will attempt to summarize some of the main programs we participate in.
One of the main programs I as a homeschooler and many other homeschoolers I know participate in, is 4-H. This program is absolutely incredible. Although agriculture is what comes to most peoples minds when they hear 4-H, this program is actually much more diverse and helps immense young people (like myself) in exiting and educational ... For example: this year I had the opportunity to, serve meals to men at our local Rescue Mission, lead a 4-H electricity class, and travel to Wilmington for NC 4-H Electric Congress
Second: Our Local Homeschool Co-op.
Once a week over 100 homeschoolers gather to participate in either educational classes or athletic activities. From launching homemade rockets to playing flag football this is a much anticipated activity.
Third: Every Day Life.
I know this may be hard to understand, but as i previously mentioned, homeschoolers strive to make "life" a learning experience, In anything and everything. I personally of benefited from helping out in the afternoons at my dad's business, learning about electricity and plumbing through house projects, and helping to build a barn.
I have listed above some of the most popular extracurricular activities, but they are also my favorite, and I would recommend participation to almost anyone!
