Our base camp for Good Vibrations is the Doubletree Hotel San Diego/Del Mar, a beautiful and conveniently located hotel less than two miles from the world-renowned Torrey Pines State Reserve and Beach.

special family vacation.

Things will get rolling Thursday with registration from Noon-2:00. Once you've registered at the hotel, head over to the beach for the Welcoming Party! Get to know fellow unschoolers with games, laughter and digging your toes in the sand.

Friday through Sunday afternoon a variety of activities are planned. Hear presentations from some of the most inspiring voices from the unschooling community. Play in a funshop or just kick back by the pool. Get your game on in a room devoted to video gaming fans. Stretch your mind at a roundtable discussion; get new ideas and practical solutions to enhance your unschooling life. Men are invited to throw caution to the wind at the meeting of SSUDs (Secret Society of Unschooling Dads). Find new friends in the lobby and head
out for lunch in a nearby beach-town café.
