“This of all the conferences I do, is my favorite. The energy and love for adventure from the attendees is wonderful!” – Dale Bartlett, Have Kids Will Travel

“My children really enjoyed the activities you had for them. Thank you”

“Always the best place to shop. Enjoyed the speakers”

“I’ve been attending since the beginning of my homeschooling days, 16 years ago. Though I generally attend fewer specific workshops these days, I still treasure the time as a leadership retreat, if you will, and for keeping up to date on education trends and available materials”

“I always love this event – it’s our one-stop annual shopping and inspiration convention! My kids love it so much they refuse to miss it for anything! It’s as exciting for them as Easter Morning!”

“I am new to homeschooling and love self governance and freedom. The convention is a wonderful place to experience the creativity of others with common values”

“I am done homeschooling, though now tutoring and I love this event. I keep learning so much”
“Thank you for the nursing room. That was a nice touch”

“The location is central, it’s great to not pay for parking, it’s great to see curriculum hands-on and collect art supplies. There’s a nice variety of things for kids to do”

“I look forward to this conference every year”

“I like how you are making this family friendly…it is often difficult to go to conventions because of having to bring the kids…you are making this easier”

“My family and I LOVE going to the WHO Convention every year and feel it is well worth the drive”
