CHN’s Family Expo is a homeschooling conference for the whole family!
The conference features breakout sessions on all aspects and styles of homeschooling along with dedicated activity rooms for teens, tweens, kids, toddlers and families. The evenings are full of activities such as teen and family dance, talent show, open mic, and movies. The expo ends with a very special high school graduation ceremony.
What sets CHN apart from other homeschool conferences? California Homeschool Network is an all-volunteer nonprofit organization. The CHN Family Expo is organized and run entirely by volunteers who work throughout the year to build an exciting and enriching homeschool conference. Their goal is to bring together the community of California homeschoolers to learn from one another and provide a fun and educational conference for the entire family, from toddlers to grandparents.
