...to a place of connection, camaraderie, exploration and encouragement
During our worldschooling ventures, we've crossed paths with numerous families living this non-traditional lifestyle... and honestly, there is nothing more refreshing than sharing time and experiences with you!
Worldschoolers are unique:
We prioritize travel and experiential learning
We live and learn outside of the box
We're willing to step out of our comfort zone
Others may call us fearless, courageous, inspirational, crazy or even foolish...but all we know is we are unequivocally drawn to travel. However, a life of wanderlust is not without its challenges.
Sometimes we hit a rut; sometimes it gets lonely; and sometimes we need reassurance and guidance from others who know what it's like to live unconventionally.
Join our Mobile Communities
Though we are a resilient bunch, perfectly capable of traveling on our own...doesn't it sound wonderful to access a portable community designed for worldschoolers by worldschoolers?
Pop-ups are the perfect platform to connect with like-minded individuals while exploring the planet together. Our week-long, casual itineraries allow you to engage in local offerings, immerse in nature, and forge lasting friendships...ideal for those beginning their worldschool adventure as well as seasoned travelers!
What's a Pop-Up?
Our pop-ups are temporary, mobile, week-long gatherings designed to bring worldschoolers together to develop community and explore our planet. Pop-ups can happen at any location, at any time.
These get-togethers bring some expected experiences: visit the museum, swim at the beach, stroll the farmers' market... but also leave room for unexpected, spontaneous adventure.
Our flexible schedules allow the group to create impromptu adjustments as they desire. Maybe everyone wants a day to sleep in or a family game night or even a grand-finale-hair-dying-extravaganza...that's a shoutout to you Madison 2021 Pop-Up Crew!

Something extraordinary happens when worldschoolers gather... it's hard to believe unless you've seen it with your own eyes.
We are welcomed and strengthened in this unique mobile community. Because we all relate to the challenge of living an unconventional lifestyle, we allow ourselves to connect on deeper levels.
Kids naturally play in multi-aged groups
Adults find a sounding board to hone their lifestyle strategies
Experiences are shared, respected, and valued
Families glean information from each other
Our past participants resonate with this welcoming, non-judgmental vibe. It really feels like you're meeting long-lost friends for the first time.
