​For members of Our Way of Learning, tours are a big deal!  Tours get our kids together and out into the community to see the inner workings of businesses, and experience what people do to make a living (sometimes with hands-on experiences included).  Tours are a unique and wonderful educational opportunity that only homeschooled kids can enjoy on such a frequent basis.  To view list of tours we've taken in the past, click here.

Costs:  In some cases, we may schedule tours at businesses that charge to give tours or for other goods and services; if this is the case, this information will be disclosed ahead of time via our BigTent group, and members choosing to attend will be responsible for those costs.  Otherwise, tours are free to all OWL members.   

Non-member Tour Policy: If you are considering joining OWL but would like to get a feel for the group’s tours ahead of time, we welcome your family to join us for one tour, free of charge (with the exception of costs such as those mentioned in the above paragraph).  If, after the initial tour, your family would like to attend any additional tours, we would ask that you join our group.  More information on joining OWL is located here.  With over a dozen tours per year, not to mention other activities, parties, and meet-ups, the $20 you pay to join OWL is a terrific value!

Availability:  Please note that on some tours, space is limited, and will be given on a first-come-first-served basis to paid OWL members, with leftover spaces available for non-members.  

Tour RSVPs:  OWL members sign up for tours using our BigTent group (see the Join Us page for more information on OWL's online membership via BigTent).  If you are not a member of OWL and would like to take advantage of the offer to try one free tour, please contact us to ensure that space is available.

We sincerely thank everyone who has an interest in attending our tours!
