Who says homeschoolers aren't socialized? HEAV's upcoming field trips

The biggest myth out there is that homeschool students are not socialized. Check out these upcoming field trips sponsored by Home Educators Association of Virginia.

Virginia Aquarium & Marine Science Museum
An HEAV-Sponsored Event!
Homeschool Day at the Virginia Aquarium
Friday, January 25 - Virginia Beach
Discover the amazing underwater world at the Virginia Aquarium. Travel on an aquatic journey from the shore to the depths of the Atlantic Ocean and experience animal feedings, training sessions, and "hands-on" programs. You'll see thousands of animals--representing more than 300 species--displayed in entertaining and educational exhibits.

Virginia Sports Hall of Fame & Children's Museum of Virginia 
An HEAV-Sponsored Event!
Two museums--one low price. The Virginia Sports Hall of Fame & Museum and the Children's Museum of Virginia have teamed up to host a homeschool day that is perfect for all ages. Spend the day at one museum, or visit them both to enjoy a fun-packed day for the whole family! Explore. Discover. Be Inspired. 

Swan Lake at the Richmond Ballet
An HEAV-Sponsored Event! 
February 8, 9, and 10 - Richmond 
For many, Swan Lake defines the very art of ballet: the lush Tchaikovsky score, the moonlit images of impossible grace, the story of mystery and transformation. There will be just four performances of this time-honored classic. Use the HEAV code to get discount prices on tickets.  

Pamplin Historical Park
An HEAV-Sponsored Event!
The National Museum of the Civil War Soldier

In programs specifically designed for children in grades 3 through 12, students will participate in a military drill, study how free and enslaved Virginia families lived 150 years ago, and come face-to-face with the experiences of Civil War soldiers!
