Frequently Asked Questions


Why should I come to Refresh?

Refresh is much more than a convention or a conference.  Yes, there will be some great speakers.  Yes, you will learn a ton.  But our focus is not on selling curriculum (we aren't!) or on selling you a particular style of homeschooling (we are very diverse!), but on encouraging and equipping you to finish your homeschool year strong.  Refresh is so much more!  We want you to find the rest, the inspiration, the relaxation you need to refresh yourself.  We know how burnt out the second semester can feel.  Let us bring some fun, fellowship, and surprises your way!


Is this just for local folks?

No, we have enjoyed getting to know women from all over the US, as about 15 states were represented at our most recent retreat!

When do I sign up for the breakout options?

We will email all registered attendees a month before the retreat to allow you to sign up for the breakout sessions of your choice.  These choices will include encouragement sessions to help you refocus, as well as hands-on workshops to help you renew.  Whether you have young children, or high schoolers, you will find sessions to meet your needs at this point in your journey.

What is your child policy?

Because we intend this to be a retreat to be a time of relaxation for homeschooling moms, there is a no child policy at our retreat.

I am flying in!  Which airport should I fly to?

We are located about one hour from the Birmingham (BHM) airport. Let us know if you need transport from the airport. We can provide pick up service!

What is the schedule like for the weekend?

Check in Friday will begin at 4.  That evening we will have your choice of a breakout session, dinner, and a main session.

Saturday morning will begin with breakfast and a main session.  After that main session we will have several breakout sessions to choose from, as well as lunch.


Saturday afternoon is reserved for some fun, optional surprises and shopping opportunities, or you can take advantage of the outdoor activity options or gathering spaces at the retreat center or even take a nap!  Saturday evening includes dinner, and a fun night of dessert and entertainment.  Sunday we will wrap up with breakfast and our final session to end around 11 am.

What is your refund policy if my plans change?

Because we have to reserve space early, we can not give any refunds for registrations already sent.  We are happy to transfer your spot to a new attendee if your plans change and you find someone who would like your spot!

I have other questions!

Just email us at, and we will be happy to help!
