Secular Support

After HSing for 1yr with my 3-4yo we made the decision to continue through next year. We started with MBtP’s 4-5 curriculum and are now awaiting arrival of the 5-7 curriculum + Life of Fred books (C & D or the 3rd and 4th in the series) + ABeCeDarian Level 2 (I may be calling it the wrong thing: we did the first 2 for levels a1 & a2 and are now moving to the next).
Through our journey we have moved multiple times. My hope is that we will not move again in the foreseeable future so we are trying to find support and socialization. We are currently in an area with A Lot of religious support groups. While I respect the choices other parents make to bring faith into education, I don’t necessarily agree with the way it’s done, the amount, some of the information/lack of information, approaches to certain lines of study, etc. so would prefer a secular approach. This is one of the major reasons I decided on MBTP in the first place (the others including flexibility, literature base, ability to jump in with no experience, whole curriculum since I had no clue where to begin in order to piece it together on my own, etc.). I haven’t been able to find any secular support groups within a reasonable distance and was wondering if anyone might have ideas, suggestions, advice, etc..

My DDs (4 & 3) & I are in coastal SC, near HHI. We do other socializing activities in the community but that doesn’t always meet the needs of a HS family.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Do you have a YMCA? Our local YMCA has a class once per week for homeschooled kids. It's secular and they do mostly games/sports, art, music, etc.

I appreciate the idea. I had already checked out The Y in our area and they didn’t have anything for homeschoolers. What’s more is that I sort of glossed over The YMCA because I know its mission statement is "to put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all" & because I’m looking for secular opportunities I just moved on. But now that you’ve brought it up again, I’ll take another look at how inclusive their approach is and maybe they’ll look at starting programs for homeschoolers if I can get enough interest.

Thanks!
