We have created a Weekend Teen Meetup group for area families with older students looking to connect with other homeschooled teens and tweens. Kids ages 10+ are invited to join any activity we have, and there are lots of fun events coming up – even free ones!
5 Wits was a request of one of our families, and we set it up as a field trip to get the educational rate of $13 per person. There happened to be a Groupon available at the end – so if you’re looking to go, always check Groupon and Living Social for deals!
We split up into groups so that they could accommodate the 30 of us who attended. Some of us went on the Espionage adventure, and my group went on the 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea adventure. We have done both, and they are both really fun.
I don’t want to spoil anything for those of you who haven’t done this before, but 5 Wits is an interactive experience where your group is tasked with problems to solve before moving on to the next space. The guide will help engage shy adventurers and give small hints as to how to solve some of the problems if you get really stuck (more by asking good “I wonder…” questions).
We have enjoyed this activity over and over again, and it was great to meet area homeschooling teens to enjoy it with us!
If you’re looking to give it a try, there is still a Groupon available for a limited time!
