Colonial Williamsburg Homeschool Days Fall 2010

Twice a year, in the Spring and Fall, Colonial Williamsburg sets aside several weeks that are designated as ‘homeschool experiences’. They offer special prices for homeschool families that include all of the exhibits and also special ‘hand-on’ opportunities. This year’s fall homeschool days will be from September 11-26, 2010. We’re especially excited since we’ll be studying Early American History this year!!!

Advance tickets are available for some GREAT prices compared to their general ticket prices {the one-day tickets are normally $39/adult and almost $20/student for the same thing!}:

~ $7.50/one-day adult ticket or $10.50/two-day ticket

~ $5.50/one-day student ticket or $8.50/two-day ticket

You can view ticket information on the Colonial Williamsburg website and download the Fall Home Educator Order Form. Don’t forget to print off the Home Educator Flyer too!  Here’s a little more info about the fall homeschool days:

“In the fall, the experience focuses on government, politics, and the Revolution. Families are encouraged to participate in the Revolutionary City® programs as well as the other diverse offerings in the Historic Area. In addition, homeschoolers have the opportunity to participate in exclusive meetings with a Person of the Past.”

Other upcoming dates to mark on your calendars:

Spring 2011 Homeschooler Experience ~ February 26–March 5, 2011
Fall 2011 Homeschooler Experience ~ September 10–25, 2011

  • I'm way too far away, but this sounds awesome! Maybe in a few years we can go.

    I actually remember a girl in grade school that went to Colonial Williamsburg on their family vacation. I remember her talking about it and how they had so much fun. It must have made an impression on me, since that had to be at least 20 years ago! LOL!

  • Wow, thanks for sharing this info. I have always wanted to go to Colonial Williamsburg! My girls are too young now but hopefully this is something they will not stop any time soon. Want them old enough to get something out of it.

  • I'd like to go to Jamestown/Yorktown for Home School Days, and am interested in camping there. Does anyone know if there's a campground where homeschool families stay while attending the events?
