From our homeschool community to our summer camps and school break programs we’re weaving our basket of community and connection that has been growing and evolving for over 15 years.

"Thank you for envisioning and providing the environment and experience that I got to be part of this weekend. Today made me fully realize that there is a strong enough primitive community in Ithaca to fulfill all of my knowledge for years to come. I am impressed by the workshops that you have been putting on in the last 6 months. I am very excited now that I will be devoting all of my Fridays to WSIC this spring/summer." Z.K., Workshop Participant
"They love it! We’re signing up again for a third third year and every experience has been so very positive. They love your staff especially and so do we. It gives us peace of mind when our children are with you." L.S., Parent
