There’s only one day left to take advantage of the CHEF Conference pre-registration. No, CHEF is not a conference where you learn how to cook. Though, they are cooking up some treats this year for St. Louis area homeschoolers. CHEF stands for (C)hristian (H)ome (E)ducator (F)ellowship. To pre-register for the CHEF conference, your registration form must be postmarked by June 15. You can find a form online at the CHEF Website. Download it, fill it out and mail it in if you want the pre-registration price.
The cost is $50 for a couple ($60 at the door) and $35 for individuals ($45 at the door). Admittance for children is $10 (up to 2 children, additional children are admitted free). If you attend the curriculum fair only, the cost is $15 per family for a 2-day pass. The 27th Annual CHEF Christian Home Educator Fellowship Conference and Curriculum Fair will take place on June 21 and 22 at the St. Charles Convention Center. This year there will be some exciting additions to the conference.
