at Larch Hill International Campsite, Rathfarnham Dublin

Thursday 15th August to Sunday 18th August

Every year HEN get together to bring home-schooling ( and potential home-schooling ) families and supporters together to meet old friends, make new friends and exchange their stories and information.

This year the annual HEN conference is just off the motorway in the Dublin mountains.Larch Hill is beautiful and very peaceful and seems a world away from Dublin but is close. If the weather is any way good it will be a fantastic weekend in nature and that's besides all the numerous activities being organised for adults and children.

Such as History workshops with Michael Moyhan; Debating contest; Orienteering; Storytelling; Grass sledging; Fort Adventura; Crate stacking; Puppet show; Baking; Gymnastics; Tie-dying; Catapult; Crochet and even more!Also there will be invited Speakers Nuala Jackson and Eoin Jackson and possibly more. Contact Mary Ong 01-6233724 if you can add to the list, the sooner the better.

As it is a large site parents with small children will have to be vigilant but older children and adults will delight in it's discovery and there are places both outdoor an in for informal play and chat.
