I know this is an old thread, but maybe this will help someone.....
whenever I move to a new place I go to google
and do a bunch of searches. Search for the name of the place and the thing that interests you. Then go to yahoo groups and search for groups that interest you.
Example: base name
also use the name of the closest town and the closet large town instead of the base name. So for fort drum you would search:
Fort Drum home school
Watertown home school
Syracuse home school
However in this example Syracuse is a bit of a drive. Doing a quick search I did find a Facebook page for a Fort Drum homeschooling group.
Also, especially with younger children, search for the base name and the word playgroup, and the words natural parenting. Also remember that other local chapters of groups may have connections to homeschoolers in the area. Groups to check would include LLL
, and others.
You can also go to military and/or homeschooling forums (such as this one) and ask if anyone knows of a good group near the base where you are moving. For example: I know if you ever move to Fort Bliss there is a wonderful group on yahoo groups. When I was there they did all kinds of activities for all ages.
Once you have found a group you can ask about the local info before you even move.
