Facility Search
As we make preparations for the 2008 National Reunion, we’d like to enlist everyone’s help in the facility search. Very Happy

Do you know of a great facility that could host our biggest community event of 2008? We're primarily looking for camps, but resorts, large lodges, university campuses could also be considered.

One of our guiding principles for the reunion is financial accessibility. In other words, we want to keep the costs as low as possible. So if you know of a camp or organization that would share our vision and work with us to keep costs low that'd be great!

If you know of a facility like this, please send a PM to Heather L or if you're not an member of the ALUMNI network (you crazy lurkers you) drop an email to heather.lingley@homeschoolalumni.org.

To make it easier for us to put suggested facilities into the database, we're asking folks to copy/paste this little template when you send in your suggested facilities:
