Unschooling Conferences We Love

Not Back to School CampTalking on the internet with other unschoolers and likeminded people is good. Talking on the phone is even better. But nothing beats seeing unschoolers in person. And while getting unschoolers together sometimes can be like herding cats, and meetups vary in quality from year to year, here are some of our favorite places to reliably connect with other unschoolers.

This list is updated periodically as new dates are added and conferences are discovered. Know of a conference we have missed? Let us know!
