|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.
The Third Annual AAHFFV in August 2006, was held on the Canadian side of Niagara Falls for 5 days and 4 nights of camping at Rock Point Provincial Park in Dunnville, Ontario.
Join us this summer -- Wednesday, August 8 - Sunday, August 12, 2007 for 5
days and 4 nights of camping at Assateaugue Island National Seashore in Maryland.
"Assateague Island is a barrier island built by sand that persistent waves have raised from the ocean's gently sloping floor.
Constant reshaping mirrors a restless origin, as steady winds continue moving trillions of sand grains, each a bit of eroded
ancient Appalachian Mountains. Occasional storms drive waves and sands so forcefully that beach and shoreline change dramatically.
But Assateague's summer mostly means the lure of beaches and mild surf where shorebirds trace the lapping waves back down
the beach. Behind the dunes, the island's forests and bayside marshes invite exploration. Now and then a wild pony wanders
into view. Assateague's south entrance is a 1/4 mile east of Chincoteague, its north entrance is eight miles from Ocean City."

2007 -- 5 days and 4 nights.
