Odds and Ends

  • Free Parking is available onsite and will be much better than in the past. However, space is not unlimited, so let’s try to keep the 15 passenger vans to a modest-sized fleet. No more than two per family.
  • If you ever have any questions during the conference, look for one of the volunteers with a yellow lanyard.
  • Friday night after the keynote will be the Homeschool Film Fest. Stay and watch an hour and a half of great Manitoba-made short films.
  • Get social. MACHS will be posting lots of fun stuff throughout the conference. You can get in on the fun as well by using the hashtag #machsbuildyourfaith . Post a selfie with a speaker, let us know what your favorite session was, and show off that new curriculum on Facebook and Instagram!

Finally, you want to make sure that you are ready for your conference.  Print off the schedule and map so you can plan out your days.




The 2018 Homeschool Conference will be on March 23-24 at the beautiful Victoria Inn.

With a great teen track, a full exhibit hall, graduation recognition, film fest, four keynotes and 30 other workshops, this is the conference you won’t want to miss.



Join us for Homeschool Film Fest 2018!

At 9 pm on the Friday, after the keynote, you can come and watch some of the latest and greatest short films made by homeschoolers in Manitoba. Watch the trailer below!
