Parent, Travel

I encourage all parents to explore different activities with their children. In Maryland, there are tons, literally hundreds of places where you can educate your child and obtain homeschool discounts. My children have always been homeschooled and I have enjoyed our homeschool journey because of the variety of different resources available to Homeschool families.






25 Places in Maryland With Homeschool Discounts or Classes






Great Homeschool Field Trip Options

Over the years, I have taken my children on many different field trips. We often received special homeschool pricing, which helped me offer my kids a richer educational experience. Below, I share some of our favorites spaces that have discounted prices or Homeschool programs. If you know of others that you enjoy please share the location in the comment section.

The following list is organized by location, all organizations are in the State of Maryland. Important tip: Homeschool Days usually sell out quickly, so it’s best to subscribe to the organization’s newsletter of the place you’d like to attend so you’ll be notified first.
