Group Description

A group of homeschooling parents dedicated to providing local field trips and group classes in the Chicago Metropolitan Area by taking advantage of discounts and special privileges given to groups versus individuals. Parents volunteer to organize events geared towards the age, interest and benefit of their students. Each event or part of it is usually aimed at a specific age or grade range. Any member may organize trips, and post events sponsored by other groups. Some trips fill quickly, so RSVP ASAP. CAHFT listowner takes no responsiblity for communication or money exchanged between members. Everyone is expected to act in good faith and with good judgement.

A little over six years ago there was a group of us around a picnic table, talking about how we wish there was field trips to go on. There weren’t enough of us in our group to set up classes and this got me to thinking. I was participating in several groups and none of them had enough kids to set up a class, but what if we networked together and did a trip with all the local groups. So I tried it with Mrs. Grossman’s sticker factory. It was easy and I started setting up more. Invite people from bigger yahoo groups. So this is what made me start BAHFT, (Bay Area Homeschool Field Trips) I moved and handed the group off to another. The group remains strong over 1150 members today! Filling a trip is no longer an issue. I wish to see CAHFT have the same success as BAHFT.
