Registration is closed

Join our Annual tradition: On the first day of school for Washoe County School District, we will NOT go back to school, but have a great summer picnic instead.

When you homeschool in Nevada, YOU decide when and where to have class. In celebration of our freedom to choose how, when and where we educate our children, let's get together and play!

So, get out your summer lawn games, lawn chairs, bring a picnic lunch and come out to enjoy the summer sun, meet other homeschooling families (experienced and new, alike).

Age recommendation: THE WHOLE FAMILY!

Cost: FREE for the potluck and clothing swap. FREE for the swimming pool, reserved JUST FOR US! Curriculum sale prices vary.

GET READY FOR A FUN DRAWING with great prizes and even CASH (A 50/50 DRAWING is $1 per ticket and 6 tickets for $5. Once we sell tickets to everyone interested, we split the pot - random drawing winner gets 50% of the total, NNHS get the other 50% to cover picnic expenses) Bring a little bit of cash for the raffle tickets.

We will also give away free "door prizes" $20 Parent Teacher Aids gift certificate and a $50 Gift Card to Walmart or Amazon

Minimum: N/A

Maximum: Everyone!

WHAT TO BRING: Pack a main dish/sandwich for your crew, and bring a dish to share in the potluck. There are no nearby food options.

Bring your used curriculum to sell, clearly labeled with prices, and a folding table or picnic blanket...and maybe your popup shade canopy.

Bring your kites, scooters, lawn darts, soccer balls and volleyballs.

Bring lawn chairs. Swim suit, towel, sunscreen, brimmed hat.

Bring your gently used kids clothing and dance / sports equipment that you are willing to GIVE to another homeschool family - free to good home.

Please arrive around 11 a.m. Eat your picnic lunch whenever (we are considering bringing hotdogs to grill...but so many families have diet restrictions).

Pool open at 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm. only.

EARLY DEPARTURES allowed at your convenience. But you won't want to miss the fun.

PARKING: Free in the nearby lot.

DIRECTIONS: US395 to Bowers Mansion exit (between Carson City and Reno)
