Chepa will provide field trip opportunities that appeal to a broad set of ages and learners. We will continue to offer and advertise member-initiated field trips and encourage small groups to plan one or two field trips throughout the year that would appeal to their children. This will ensure field trips that cover the wide spectrum of diversity found in the homeschooling population. Priority for field trip sign up will be given first to those attending the monthly meetings, and then to newsletter subscribers. Any remaining openings are advertised to the larger homeschool community through the Yahoo Group. This priority system allows those most involved in CHEPA to benefit from their involvement.
Special events are planned by members. In addition to offering the traditional special events like the Spelling Bee, small groups are encouraged to host one special event throughout the year. By having small groups participate in this way, we will provide a diverse offering of events appealing to a wide range of students and families.
