Founded by African-American Unschooling, a national network of Black homeschooling families, the African-American Homeschoolers Family and Friends Vacation is an annual celebration of cultural heritage
and family learning.
In 2004, the AAHFFV began at the Grand Canyon in northern Arizona where families from six states camped on the South Rim. In 2005 the sold-out event
was held on the Gullah Islands of South Carolina with over 100 people in attendance.
Join us this summer -- Wednesday, August 30 - Sunday, September 3, 2006 for 5
days and 4 nights of camping at Rock Point Provincial Park in Dunnville, Ontario, Canada. Rock Point Provincial Park is located 1 hour South of Niagara Falls, with "exposed
fossils embedded in limestone shelves along the beach, this peninsula was a coral reef 350 million years ago. A platform above
the sand dunes offers the best view of Lake Erie, migrating birds and monarch butterflies... the Carolinian forests here are
home to opossum, Canada's only marsupial."
