Registering at the Conference

Begin by registering in Gruenhagen Conference Center, 208 Osceola St., Oshkosh, WI. An experienced conference goer will orient you to the conference.

Meet & Greet—Friday 4 to 6 pm

Are you looking for a central place to meet up with your fellow homeschoolers? A place to make new acquaintances or reconnect with friends you’ve met at previous conferences? Or maybe you’d like to chat with someone one-on-one about the conference itself and what all it’s offering? Well, the Meet & Greet is the place to be! Stop by for 5 minutes or hang out for the whole time.  The Meet & Greet is located in Gruenhagen Conference Center.

Check Your Nametag

Conference goers’ nametags will indicate which of WPA’s 15 regions of Wisconsin they live in. (Regions are determined by county boundaries.) You can find people with the same number on their nametag and introduce yourself as someone from their area.

Table Talks

Talk one-on-one and in small groups with friendly new and experienced homeschoolers. Topics such as “What does homeschooling look like?” and “Relax, have fun, and learn.” Or go to the Q & A table and ask about anything that’s on your mind.

Family Folk Dance

Friday evening, UWO Alumni Center. See the Family Folk Dance page

Talk with people

Talk with people in workshops, in the Connections area, in lounges on the lodging floors, at meals, walking to workshops. Family Activity workshops provide good opportunities to meet other homeschoolers.
