3rd Annual UWWG Announced for 2010

We're excited to announce the 3rd Annual UWWG (Unschoolers Winter Waterpark Gathering) will be Feb 7 - 13, 2010 at the awesome Kalahari Indoor Waterpark Resort - Sandusky, Ohio!

Join us for a week of awesome fun and support among a 1000+ unschoolly / life learning homeschooling families from around the country, at Ohio's Kalahari Waterpark Resort - the largest Indoor waterpark in the USA!

Plus, NO Registration or Conference Fees! Our super discounted room rates start at only $99/per night for a standard 4 person room - and that includes your waterpark passes and participation in all our UWWG Events! What a tremendous deal!!!

Our 2010 UWWG will be even bigger and better! We'll be doubling the size of the conference area we'll be using, so we'll have lots more room for all the Funshops, Talks and Events being planned.


We already have several awesome and inspirational keynote speakers confirmed for next year!

Jeff and Ginger Sabo will be joining us from sunny, southern California, where they unschool their two sons, Kai (10) and Kade (7). Jeff and Ginger are well liked and respected among the unschooling community. They have both led talks at the former Live and Learn Unschooling Conferences. Jeff will be a keynote speaker at the 2009 Life is Good Unschooling Conference this May in Vancouver, Washington, and the first Good Vibrations Unschooling Conference in San Diego, this coming September. Jeff also writes a blog, Free Boys Dad, about the challenges and learning that comes with balancing an unschooling lifestyle with a corporate career. And Ginger's blog can be found at: http://twofreeboysplus3.blogspot.com/ . We are very excited to be having both Jeff and Ginger speaking at our next UWWG.

Kelly and Ben Lovejoy will be joining us from South Carolina where they live with their unschooled son, Duncan (13) and unschooled, traveling son Cameron (21). We are happy to have Kelly back as a keynote speaker and glad Ben will be joining us for his first UWWG next year. Kelly started the former Live and Learn Unschooling Conferences which she coordinated until September 2008, for 8 years. Her amazing and successful conferences have since inspired unschooling conferences around the country, including our UWWGs! Kelly also is the list owner of the Unschooling Basics Yahoo group, a very active nationwide unschooling yahoo group with over 2200 members. We are excited to have both Ben and Kelly speaking at our next UWWG!

Laura Flynn Endres will be joining us from northern rural Illinois, where she lives with her husband, Rob and their 2 sons, Brady(16) and Jonathan (12) , whom they've unschooled for the last 10 years. Laura has spoken on unschooling at various conferences and events throughout Illinois. She recently took charge of publicity for her state's annual homeschooling conference and has also been featured on the Relaxed Homeskool BlogTalkRadio Show. She enjoys writing and has an interesting blog where she writes about her family's unschooling lifestyle, Wistful Wanderlust. Laura attended our last year's UWWG where she was often found socializing and tattooing in the Henna funshops and became our unofficial mendhi goddess. She was also a sudden replacement for one of our unschooling discussion panel presenters and did an awesome job speaking! We're excited that she'll be joining us next year, and we look forward to hearing her speak again!

If you too would like to be a Presenter at next year's UWWG, please contact Kimberly Conti, our UWWG Presenters Coordinator.

For further details and to start chatting with other UWWG attendees, please join our UWWG yahoo group.

Please help us spread the word, by sharing this announcement with all your unschooling friends and posting on all your unschooling groups!

THANKS and see you next February!!!
