Welcome to the 2nd Annual Charlotte Homeschool Swap Meetup hosted by BSA Unit 447, a homeschool Scout Unit based here in Charlotte, NC. The festivities will start at 9am and go until 2pm on Saturday, July 28th, rain or shine. Admission is free and is open to anyone with an interest in homeschooling.


The Swap Meet will be a multi-faceted event, with three objectives. We aim to:

1) promote homeschool advocacy and awareness,
2) repurpose gently used educational books and materials,
3) provide a venue for homeschool families to network, connect, commiserate and collaborate.

Buy/Sell or Trade your homeschool items (plus anything else you'd like to sell). Give your Homeschool items new life with a new family!!

There will be lots of activities for the kids to include a bouncy house, and rope bridge.

Grab a cup of coffee and something to eat at our Cafe! Snow cones with homemade syrup!

We will have Fire Station Tour at 10:30 adn an aerial drone demonstration at 12:30pm.

We welcome your homeschool group or organization to attend!! You can have a presence with a table or booth, or just by milling about with an "ask me about" nametag.

Anyone selling items or promoting a group are asked to donate $5 or more. Just let your heart and the relative value of the Swap Meetup event guide your donation amount.

Unit 447 will also have our signature and somewhat famous Garage Sale in conjunction with the Swap Meetup. Drop off your item donations either Saturday morning, or arrange for a pickup.

We look forward to seeing you there!!
