Resources for Home Based Education
At certain times of the year Georgia 4-H Centers reserve space exclusively for individual families to sign up for overnight or day field studies. Our centers are normally open for groups, not individuals or single families. This is a great opportunity for individual families from all over the region to take part in our excellent programs and make new friends at the same time. Children are divided into groups with similar aged children for classes. Parents attend class with their children. Programs and locations will vary each season so check back here to see the current offerings.

Plan Your Own Day  
With a minimum of 10 people (children + adults) you can organize and plan your own trip to any of the Georgia 4-H Centers. Every year many families come with their local homeschool group for an overnight or day field study. This option has the most flexibility--you can pick dates and classes that work best for you. All five Georgia 4-H Centers and Tidelands on Jekyll welcome these groups any time there is space available.
We look forward to serving you!
