Homeschool Field Trips

Homeschool Days at RVR!


Offered in the Fall and Spring, our Homeschool program is a 1-day event from 9AM to 4PM at River Valley Ranch, for students ages 7 to 18and parents can participate too!


For co-ops, families, and individuals, RVR's Homeschool field trip days provide a uniquely fun and wholesome way to engage homeschooling kids and get them out of the house, bonding with their peers and building confidence to take on new personal challenges. Like RVR's other school field trip programs, homeschooling students will be encouraged through various adventure activities to step outside of their comfort zone, build friendships, and learn about themselves from a biblical perspective. If you've been looking for fun things to do as a home school family, we made this program just for you!
