St. Charles County, Missouri – Homeschooled children can acquire core school hours in a unique environment during Homeschool Days at The Historic Daniel Boone Home, 1868 Highway F in Defiance. This learning and exploring opportunity for children and their families will be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., May 30 and Aug. 28. Children will learn about life on the frontier through hands-on programs and demonstrations in our historic village.

Held just twice a year, Homeschool Days teaches participants about life on the frontier through hands-on programs and demonstrations. The park’s interpretive staff and volunteers demonstrate how to dip candles, play frontier games, marble paper, work with the carpenters and more. This event is perfect for students of all ages who are learning about Missouri history. Participants should bring a sack lunch; Taste of Mayberry Kettle Corn and Kona Ice will sell refreshments on site.

The cost of the program is $5 per person; children 4 and under are free and do not need to register. Those who register three children will receive a free adult ticket. Space is limited, and pre-registration is suggested. To make a reservation, call the St. Charles County Parks and Recreation Department at 636-949-7535 or register online at
