Homeschool Days

Fort Ligonier is excited to host Fall Homeschool Day on Wednesday, September 11, 2019!

Homeschool Days are for all ages and include experiential learning activities. This is a great opportunity for a field trip experience, but also a time to share and network with other homeschool parents and children. We offer special pricing, programs and scheduling. You are also welcome to visit any other time of the year, but hope that you will join us for our designated Homeschool Day events this year.

Activities run from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm, but you are welcome to stay and explore until 4:30.

Advance registration is required.

To register, mail the registration form with payment to Fort Ligonier or register online.

Your family/group will receive a packet with your tickets, schedule, and map upon check-in (9:45-10:00 am).  Each family will be able to select stations based on their family’s needs and ages.  You will have the enough time to attend six of the different activity stations.  Activities are geared for preschool through high school age students, so please click on the Planned Activity Stations for the list of each activity.  Please follow the start and end times for all activities.
