Desert Rocks’ Special Offer for Local Homeschoolers!

Desert Rocks Indoor Climbing Gym in North Palm Springs has a great new offer for local homeschoolers! Bring the kids for some indoor climbing fun on weekdays between 11am and 1pm for a reduced rate. See the flyer below for details! This is a great deal for those just wanting to try it out or see what this climbing thing is all about. For those that decide they’d like to make a regular thing, Family Memberships are available that allow you to use the gym anytime of the week! For some Public Charter School members, Desert Rocks is a vendor. Check your school, or ask Desert Rocks staff if you can use your school funds to pay for your child’s membership. The homeschooler drop in rate does not qualify.

Indoor rock climbing is a great sport! It builds strength, balance, and confidence in a relatively safe environment. For homeschool parents, it’s a boon! Older kids can climb and play while Mom’s can tend to babies. There are inherent dangers in this kind of climbing, so we do need to stay on top of the kids so that they don’t get hurt, but the staff at Desert Rocks is there to help us learn what is safe and what isn’t. It’s indoors, clean, friendly, AND has a bathroom. What else can a family ask for?! Tell your friends and pick a day for your homeschool group to gather there.

If you’d like some special instruction for you and/or your kids, Desert Rocks staff will offer extra help on Thursday’s during the homeschool time. The more people that show up for this time, the more they will be willing to offer extra things for us, like climbing instruction and maybe even a Mom’s group! My kids have been climbing for about a year now and just recently I gave in and tried it myself. I love it! It’s a great family activity that we enjoy several times a week.

Magazines Anyone?

There was a time when I believed that having a subscription to a printed magazine was useless or just too costly a luxury. But the past several years I’ve found that to be so not true! My original thinking was that you could find most of that information online for free, but then my son got a magazine subscription from his Great-Grandfather for his birthday. It was amazing how much we picked up and read that magazine when we had a couple minutes to spare! Not only that but the magazines sitting there on the coffee table started conversations with guests that we would have never even started had they not been there. They also suggested ideas that we would even have thought to search out!

So where am I going with this? Home School Enrichment Magazine! I don’t know how many times my parents, unsure of our decision to homeschool, have picked up that magazine and thumbed through it’s pages at a birthday party or dinner. I’ve given them to friends and family that have been curious about homeschooling. I’ve found interesting points of view and new blogs to follow from their pages. Not to mention the “normal” feeling you have from seeing it in print!
