Fortson Homeschool Club in Hampton GA

Fortson 4-H Center is excited to offer its Environmental Education program to homeschool families this Spring!  Although usually used by traditional, brick-and-mortar private & public schools, Fortson 4-H Center has designed a program specifically and tailor-made for homeschool families!  
The Fortson Homeschool Club will start February 7 and end on May 23, meeting the 2nd and 4th Friday of every month.  This semester includes 8, 2-hour classes; 1 each meeting.  Intended age of students is 5-14 but all ages are welcome!  Classes include Herpetology, Pond Ecology, Forest Ecology, Team Building, Farm2Plate, Orienteering, Wilderness Survival and Pioneer Studies.  Fortson 4-H Center is a part of the University of Georgia’s cooperative extension so all classes are taught from an academic and research based curriculum, but are hands-on, engaging and FUN!
The Fortson Homeschool Club is fun and educational, making it an outstanding supplement to your instruction and a great way for you and your child to meet other homeschoolers!  Space is limited so register now!
