Children’s Program


While you’re taking in the Homeschool Iowa Conference, your children can enjoy a Bible-based program is a secure environment with screened and trained staff and teachers.

Our highly acclaimed conference children's program offers a new theme every year, effectively communicating principles found in the Word of God through songs, memory verses, activities, lesson times, and the much anticipated 8-part fully-scripted and costumed drama!

This year’s theme is The Great Adventure, based on the travels of missionary adventurer David Livingstone, presenting "a mission to pursue and a love to share!" 



Children ages 5–12 can be registered for the Homeschool Iowa Children’s Program.

$40/child for current NICHE member families
$45/child for non members
A limited number of openings are available.
Registrations are accepted through online advance conference registration.
Lunch is included in the cost of the Children’s Program. Our menu (to be announced) will include gluten and dairy free options. All lunches and snacks are nut free.

The Homeschool Iowa Conference Children’s Program would simply not be possible without our tremendous volunteers. If you have two willing hands and a servant’s heart, we want you to join our team! Volunteers participate on leadership teams, teach lessons, decorate classrooms, and enjoy an amazing experience.

Teen Volunteer Opportunities

Is your homeschooling teen looking for an opportunity to join other home educated students in fellowship and service?

Our Homeschool Iowa Teen Volunteer Team is the answer! 

We're looking for willing young people with the heart to serve. Volunteer positions like this look great on a resume or transcript, and the experience is invaluable. 



Youths ages 14-18 can serve as onsite conference volunteers or offsite children's program volunteers for the Homeschool Iowa Conference.

Homeschool Iowa Teen Volunteers must be at least 14 years old by June 1, 2018, with at least one parent who is a current NICHE member and will be attending the 2018 Homeschool Iowa Conference.

A great-looking conference t-shirt and lunches are provided, but we also offer volunteers who register early the opportunity to obtain a complimentary hotel room. And, of course, the service and fellowship experiences are invaluable. 

Volunteer registration is completed online. We have separate registration forms for onsite conference volunteers and offsite children's program volunteers. Find the forms here

For the safety and security of all Homeschool Iowa attendees and their children, Homeschool Iowa Conference and Children’s Program volunteers 16 years of age and older will be required to comply with a third party background check.


It was a great experience! 
The name 'homeschool conference' doesn't sound like much fun, but it was actually a lot of fun – cool, humorous, and more!”
