SC State Park Outsiders
Date: Various dates throughout 2014-2015
Registration: Ongoing

Become an outsider!...
Our goal is to visit all of South Carolina's 47 state parks during 2014-2015. If we succeed, we'll get a special Outsider t-shirt and a lot of great memories. We'll have picnics, hike trails, geocache, and participate in educational or cultural programs.

Each visit will be different, but all will focus on building friendships, exploring SC's historic sites and natural resources, and spending quality family time together outside. You don't have to attend every event - just join in when you can!

Cost and what's included...
There's no extra cost for this (other than the Guide and Park Passport, or the individual park fees if you don't buy the Passport). I'll cover the cost of renting picnic shelters and reserving any special educational programs.

Rain/inclement weather policy...
Outsider events may be cancelled and rescheduled due to rain/inclement weather.

Want to join us?
To join our Outsider group, you must:

1. Be a member of Carolina Homeschooler (see our membership area for more information).

2. Buy an Official Guide to South Carolina State Parks online or at a park near you. (We'll take our guides to all the parks/sites we visit to get them stamped.)

3. I'd also recommend buying a Park Passport instead of paying park fees every time you visit. (I get the Plus, and it pays for itself by the end of the year.)

4. Register here to become a Carolina Homeschooler Outsider!

After you complete the registration form, you'll receive an automated notification that it posted correctly. This email does not confirm your spots in our group - it just confirms that your registration went through correctly. I'll email a confirmation after you've been officially added to our group.

Please email me if you have any questions or don't receive your automated email within 30 minutes of registering.

(I use the same registration form for many of my trips and events. Please make sure you choose the correct event on the form and complete all required fields.)

Important Notes
Outsider events are for members only. Visit our membership area for more information about becoming a member.

Please make sure you select the correct event on the registration form. (I use the same form for multiple events.)

Homeschoolers in surrounding states are welcome to join us.

Our plans can change at the last minute due to bad weather. I'll inform Outsiders of any changes as soon as possible.
