Wake County park offers series for homeschoolers

Posted June 27, 2011

Wanted to quickly share some information about this program offered through Blue Jay Point County Park in northern Wake County.

The Kids Conservation Corps - Dinner From Dirt semester-long series is for homeschoolers ages 9 to 12. The Corps is an annual natural history education series for kids with a new theme each year and is designed for homeschoolers. The cost is $60 for the semester of eight sessions. It starts in September.

The park must have at least 10 participants to register by Aug. 15 in order to hold the series.

    Hey homeschoolers, avoid this program like the plague. I would guess that one big reason you homeschool is to avoid the leftist indoctrination present in the public schools. This program is, I'm sure, run by environmentalist wackos who'll tell your kids that meat is murder, veganism is the only acceptable way to eat and organic farming will save the world. I've been to the Blue Jay Point Park brainwashing - I mean - nature center. It's a place to avoid at all costs. Taxpayer funded claptrap, pure and simple.

    It meets Tuesday afternoons when most kids in this age range would be in school. So that's why it's designed for homeschoolers. The park also offers a variety of programs on weekends for kids who aren't homeschooled. Here's a link with details:

    Only for homeschoolers? How can that be?
