    Default Hello, another newbie here! Moving to Myrtle Beach, SC

    Hello everyone, I am homeschooling my 4 kids they are DD15, DD13, DS10, and DD8. We are thinking about moving to Myrtle Beach, SC so the kids and I can be closer to my parents while my husband is on the road. Does anybody know of some good groups to join there? Any groups in Myrtle Beach, Conway, Georgetown, Pawley's Island anything really in the surrounding area. I found one group called NICHE but I can't tell if they are really that active or not.

    Thank you in advance for any suggestions.

    I used to live the Sumter area and we loved going to Myrtle Beach. :-)

    My homeschooling adventures started in SC when my oldest was 5yo :-) Back then, you had to have an umbrella school to homeschool under the law. Some were very Christian. Others were, um, less Christian, lol. Almost every area had at least one umbrella school that was inclusive even if they were Christian to some degree. Most of them had off shoot groups that did field trips and book clubs and such. All in all, we had a great time homeschooling in SC.

    Ok just double checked the laws in SC and they are still more or less the same as were when we lived there (Someone please tell me how on earth that got to be almost 20 years ago!?!?). You still have to homeschool under the supervision of the school district, the state homeschool charter/co-op thingie or a local homeschool association that reports to the state. We went the local homeschool association route even though they were a Christian group. Never had a problem with our family not being Christian unless I decided I wanted to be on the board for the group which I didn't want to be lol. But they organized all kinds of field trips, guest speakers (got the fire department to come out and give the kids a demonstration one time), playground days, mom's nights, curriculum swaps and fairs... That was in Sumter though, about 2-ish hours away from Conway/Myrtle beach. I can't imagine though that there isn't a group like that near Myrtle Beach.

    Best of luck to you and I am just a little jealous of your opportunity to live near Myrtle Beach. I would be all over that if I had the chance. ;-)
