(Starting off rough; can be cleaned up at a later time)

NOTE: The first day would be easiest to miss. Pam and I have spoken other places, and will speak some more on Saturday. We'll be around all the time. People who miss Thursday's talks won't miss the most important parts.

Wednesday if people can show up that would be great; get some firewood and kindling, get settled into your condo.
There is a breakfast room, not fancy, not cooked food, but a good gathering place each morning.

Thursday 9:30 Discussion of what we've learned about unschooling in the past 12 years or so, and how, and what's surprising

12:00-2:30 lunch break (enough time to leave the site, or make a lunch and have a nap, or to hang out with others)

2:30-5:00 Pam Sorooshian, presentation and discussion (topic not named yet)

5:00-6:00 Blake's Lotaburger on site

Thursday after dinner, Apples to Apples and other table games (we have all the American sets and the U.K. Jr. set)



9:30 Joyce Fetteroll, "Building Pitfalls" (title subject to revision), stories of how people come to a new understanding, and some of the pitfalls people can fall into while they think they're getting it.

12:00-2:30 lunch break

2:30 Dads meet. Short presentations by Keith Dodd, Cyrus Sorooshian and Carl Fetteroll, and discussion. No moms.

Moms can hang out elsewhere, go touristing, or get food ready for the potluck.

5:30 Potluck dinner, followed by Show and Tell (talk about something you have, found, bought, made, were given, learned, can do...)



9:30 Teens and Young Adults will share what they know, believe and have done regarding unschooling, for the benefit of each other and everyone else there.

12:00 lunch break

2:30, Closing Statements: What we've learned in the past three days

5:30 Enchilada dinner

Hanging out


Sunday is an unscheduled day. Those who need to go home can check out in a leisurely fashion. Those who are staying for a tourist day can check out on Monday.
