It depends on the month! WASH attempts to provide one or two opportunities per month. WASH members are encouraged to plan field trips for the membership based on WASH Board approval.

Is this a Christian based organization?
Yes. Please read our by-laws. In order to become a member, you must accept and sign our by-laws which contain a basic Christian statement of faith.

Is WASH family-oriented?
Yes. This group is a family oriented group which encourages all family members to be involved as much as possible. We strongly encourage board members to be husband and wife teams. We desire to encourage the entire family in the home-schooling endeavor. Some field trips and activities will be organized that do have some age or grade limitations based on content of the event.

Does WASH publish a newsletter?
Currently we have a monthly newsletter. Your newsletter will come to you via postal mail, email, and a copy will be available on the website. If you do not want a paper copy in the mail, please let us know.
