The Homeschool Event of the Year!
2016 Great Homeschool Conventions
Great Homeschool Conventions is excited to partner with National Center for Life and Liberty, with a special thanks to our Title Sponsor, WORLD News Group, to host four regional homeschool conventions once again in 2016!
Why would you want to attend a Great Homeschool Conventions event? Each year, we begin to build the coming year’s event with that question in mind. We love our homeschooling families and want to bring the very best to you. We strive to provide top notch homeschool conventions which encourage, inspire, and educate homeschooling families to continue to do what they do best: homeschool!
First, we gather the cream of the crop for speakers and put together the best line up possible. We have 40–50 featured speakers each year! There are over 230 speaking sessions presented at each event. Here are just a few of our amazing speakers in 2016: Ann Voskamp, John Stonestreet, Chrystal Evans Hurst, Dr. Kathy Koch.
Visit our featured speakers page for a complete listing. We also have other presenters providing general sessions covering a wide variety of topics of interest to homeschooling families.
We have several “tracks” which address very specific interests of homeschooling families:
Our Real Faith for the Real World Teen track helps teens learn how to defend their faith in today’s world. John Stonestreet, Mark Mittleburg, Brett Kunkle, and Dr. Jay Wile will provide your teens with a wealth of information on how to address the tough issues they are faced with today.
At the Homeschool event of the year, you will also have the opportunity to shop ’til you drop in the huge exhibit hall. The exhibit hall is filled with hundreds of booths that often offer special “convention discounts” on homeschool curriculum.
Giant Cow Ministries offers an action-packed vacation Bible school type program complete with skits, songs, and a full range of activities. With a separate registration, your children attend this special “children’s conference” for children ages 3–12 at the Southeast, Texas, and Midwest events, and ages 6–12 at the California event.
Each year, we search for special events which offer a learning experience or a fun night out for families to spend time together. This coming year, we are happy to have these events:
- The Willis Clan will perform at the Southeast, Texas, and Midwest homeschool conventions.
- Holocaust survivor Dr. Inge Auerbacher will be educating families about the Holocaust and will be sharing her experience as a young child living in a concentration camp for three years. Dr. Auerbacher will be joining us for the Southeast and Midwest events.
- Comedian Bob Smiley will be performing for those attendees at the Texas homeschool convention.
- Comedian Dennis Regan will be entertaining at the California homeschool convention.
- Professional Christian theatrical company Friends of the Groom will perform their version of C.S. Lewis’ popular novel, The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe at all four GHC events.
We will see you there!
