What is BC CHEC?

The BC Christian Home Education Convention is one of the largest home education conferences in western Canada. We believe that parents have a God-given responsibility in the education of their children. Our desire is to support Christ-centered home education by providing this event which brings together homeschooling families with resource-providers, speakers, and supportive networking options for two days of inspiration, encouragement, and challenge.

Youth and children’s programs are available for kids from preschool to grade 12. Each program is available for a single day, or for the full weekend. You can view pricing for each program here.

We no longer offer a supervised nursery program, but there will be a nursery room available for parents to use. If a program option does not show up on the registration form, it is full. Please contact Michelle Kapelle to be placed on a waiting list.

CHEC does not have Special Education assistants for these programs. Children with special needs or behavioral issues will be required to have an adult/older sibling attend with them.
