About This Site


"A strange hush clings to the edge of this mile-deep canyon. It's the hush of reverential awe. For the first-time visitor to the canyon, there's no better approach than from the south, across the barren windswept scrubland of the Colorado Plateau. You hardly notice the elevation gain and the change to pine and juniper forest. Suddenly --it's there. No preliminaries, no warning. Stark, quiet, a maze of colors and cathedrals sculpted by nature."

Frommer's Arizona, by Karl Samson with Jane Aukshunas

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.

Camp Mather campground is conveniently located on the South Rim, within walking distance of Grand Canyon Village, where families will have access to grocery store, pharmacy, post office and many other services.
