2008 Oregon Christian Home Educators Conference

The Oregon Christian Home Education Conference is being held in Portland on June 20 & 21, 2008. This conference is presented by OCEANetwork.

Featured speakers will be Dr. Voddie Baucham, Jr., Mark Hamby, Carol Barnier and others.

It’s at the Oregon Convention Center and will have 27 workshops plus a Large curriculum exhibit and used curriculum exchange.

You can register online at Oregon Homeschool Conference. If you do this soon- by June 4th you will save $10.00 on the $60.00 (for one person, spouse free) registration fee! You can also register at the door. The OCEANetwork used to have two events each year- one was the curriculum exhibit/exchange and the other was the workshops/seminars. Since they have combined these events the cost has gone up considerably!

We went to the curriculum exhibit a few years ago and were overwhelmed with all the options presented there- but if you are a person who wants to handle a book/curriculum before you purchase, this is the place for you! There are also discounts on the new curriculum when you purchase it there. Unfortunately, there are not very many of these kind of events in our area so if you are looking at homeschooling in general, feel the need for a different curriculum or just need to refill your batteries, then give this event your consideration.
