We will be traveling just 2 hours southwest of Portland to Great Wolf Lodge New England in Fitchburg, MA. Join other homeschoolers & unschoolers for a break from the cold and some community building! The indoor water park is warm and inviting. There are thrilling big slides and mellow lil' slides, a fun wave pool for everyone and an indoor/outdoor hot tub for Adults (and kiddos with adult supervision), PLUS so much more!

Join us for Maine Homeschool Field Trips' Annual Holiday Tradition! We will be attending the full-length community showing of the Victorian Nutcracker!

Homeschool Portfolio Reviews

Share your homeschooling adventure with me during an online video meeting on Zoom. Using either a classic physical portfolio and or an oral narrative, this process will fulfill the state-required annual assessment. Be sure to bring your questions about educational resources and learning styles!

Midyear Check-In

Share your homeschooling adventure with me during an online video meeting on Zoom. Together we will review the student's academic progress and celebrations for the midyear. This optional check-in can help refocus your plan to meet your goals for the 2nd half of the school year.

Group Portfolio Reviews

Share your homeschooling adventure during an online group video meeting on Zoom. I will facilitate a group review of student's academic progress. Draw on the wisdom and experience of fellow homeschoolers during this relaxed group meeting. This will fulfill the state requirement for a year-end portfolio review.
