Volunteer Camp Assistant Needed

Nikki Fripp is in search of a volunteer to help her with a day camp at Scott Community Center on St. Helena. This is would be a wonderful opportunity to impact children in this community and be a witness for the Lord Jesus Christ. Please contact Nikki if you are interested in helping in this way.

She also in need of people to help with rides to some activities that were planned that initially were supposed to have access to a 12 passenger van. This would be once a week.

Additionally if anyone can come and help once or twice a week or for a few hours a day that would also be greatly appreciated.

I am hoping to help some myself after VBS. The camp runs through the first few weeks of August.

Contact me if interested and I will put you in touch with Nikki – or 843-592-1502

Kids Life Crafts Field Trip December 4th

From Kristie Schubert –

To Kids Life Crafts Parents:

So far this year, we have learned about Canada, Scotland, Russia and China. We are learning facts, geographical information and making crafts. The crafts we have been making lately are ornaments for the Festival of Trees. Our theme this year is “For God So Loved the World.”

I have scheduled a field trip for anyone who would like to view our tree. The location is at Tabby Place on Port Republic Street at 10 am on Friday December 4th. Admission is $3 for Adults and $1 for children.

This year’s festival also includes shops, Santa and a Snow Day on Sunday December 6th. A full schedule is here:

All proceeds go to benefit Friends of Carolina Hospice. The ornaments for our tree were made by the children in our “Crafts around the World” classes during Woman’s Life.

Please call me at 843-592-0528 if you have any questions regarding the field trip December 4th.

Thank you,

Kristie Schubert.


Pumpkin Patch

There is still time to sign up for the Pumpkin Patch field trip to Madrac Farms.  Please email with number of students and adults.  Please refer to previous post for all the details. 476 6868. Thank you.pumpkin patch

TIME: 11:00 A.M Sharp
LUNCH: I’m recommending a sack lunch. They do offer a lunch package, but it must be ordered ahead of time, which will complicate things. You’re welcome to call and order it individually, just tell them you’re with CBCCA homeschooling group.
SIGN -UP: Please email with number of students and adults. Please pay by October 8, call Charles Cox for more information @ 476-6868. Thank you.

Please read the following:
Hay ride—Take a class trip through the deep Georgia Woods and around the corn maze. Takes about 10-15 minutes. Classes will try to be loaded together, depending on size.
Corn maze—About 5 acres this year, not to big, but not to small. We recommend breaking up into groups of 5 and trying to see who can make it through the maze the quickest. Takes about 20 minutes.
Hay Play—There’s nothing more enjoyable for a child than playing around in the hay! Please plan on your children getting dirty.
Animal Feeding— A great learning opportunity for those kids that have never seen a goat, pig, or chicken, except on television. Animal feed is included for each child on fieldtrips. A 5 minute walk from the entrance.
Trip through pumpkin patch—We grow our own, and it’s exciting to see little faces when they realize pumpkins grow from a vine. Children will pick up their pie pumpkin that is included in their visit as they exit the farm, not in the pumpkin patch. (The pie pumpkins don’t grow in South Georgia.) A 5-minute walk from the entrance.
Big Slide—New this year is our big slide. Every child will want to take a ride down the 13-foot slide on a potato sack.
Bouncy house— New this year, a bouncy house is included with all admission.
Coupon for FREE visit for each child—Each child participating in a field trip will receive a coupon to come back to the pumpkin patch for FREE during the 2014 season.
Child sized pumpkin (for children only) – Children only will receive a small pumpkin to take home with them. This pumpkin will be picked up at the Entrance/Exit area, not picked from the pumpkin patch. It makes it much easier so parents and teachers aren’t keeping track of 25 different pumpkins during your visit.
Recommendations: We recommend breaking up into class sizes or even groups of 10 when doing a field trip. A great rotation is Corn Maze, Hay ride, Pumpkin Patch, Animal Feeding, Lunch (if dining with us), Hay Play/Bouncy House/Slide. There will NOT be a Farm employee with you to guide your visit, so it is up to teachers/parents to get your group through the farm. We will have employees stationed at all areas of the farm to answer any questions and to assist you and your staff in any way we can.
Depending on your group size, your visit can vary from 1.5 to 2.5 hours. We recommend bringing and wearing your school ID badges while at the farm and that everyone wears closed-toed shoes.

Homeschool Fridays Return for the New School Year

HC’s Homeschool Fridays Return for the New School Year

COLUMBIA, S.C. (Aug. 19, 2014)—Historic Columbia invites all homeschool students to enjoy hands-on activities while learning and exploring different themes and historic sites at Homeschool Fridays, held on the first Friday of each month.

The Homeschool Friday schedule this fall includes:

Sept. 5 | History of Media in Columbia and Richland County

Meet in the Gift Shop at Robert Mills, 1616 Blanding St.

Students will explore the rich media history of Columbia and Richland County including early newspapers, radio, and television stations. Topics will include yellow journalism, the assassination of The State’s founder by a lieutenant governor, and samples from newspapers that have operated in Columbia. From The Columbia Gazette in 1794 to, students will see how information has been communicated to Richland County’s residents throughout history.

Oct. 3 | Mourning Customs of the 19th Century

Meet in the Gift Shop at Robert Mills, 1616 Blanding St.

Students will discover how people in the 19th century mourned the loss of a loved one. Women were expected to observe certain mourning customs such as covering mirrors in a black cloth, wearing dark clothing and black jewelry, and even children wore a black ribbon around their arm. The students will also make their own “hair wreath,” a common practice to remember a loved one.

Nov. 7 | Woodrow Wilson’s Presidency

Meet at the Woodrow Wilson Family Home, 1705 Hampton St.

The lasting effects of President Woodrow Wilson’s decisions as this nation’s leader continue to be felt today. This program will explore his work as president including the creation of the Federal Reserve to stabilize the banking system, his leadership in World War I, and the passage of the 19th amendment granting women the right to vote.

Dec. 5 | Main Street Tour

Meet at the South Carolina State House at the intersection of Gervais and Main streets.

Main Street, or Richardson Street as it was originally called, is the most architecturally diverse area of Columbia today. From 19th-century two-story brick buildings to the newest office towers, Main Street’s prosperity has grown and declined over the city’s history. On a walking tour from the State House to the Tapp’s building, students will see the first mall on Main Street, bank vaults, movie theaters, and former department stores as they learn how building uses have changed and how Main Street is being revived.

Historic Columbia’s Homeschool Friday programs are $5 per student and open to all homeschool students of elementary and middle school age levels, and reservations are suggested. To reserve a spot or get more information, visit, email or call 803-252-1770 ext. 36.

About Historic Columbia:

In November 1961, a small group of individuals intent on saving the Ainsley Hall House from demolition officially incorporated as the Historic Columbia Foundation. Over the next five decades the organization, which was founded on the premise of preservation and education, would take on the stewardship of seven historic properties in Richland County. Today, the organization serves as a model for local preservation efforts and interpretation of local history. Visit or find us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram or YouTube for more details.
