ARCHE Infoline

Here is a list of ARCHE activities. Please contact ARCHE to have an event added to the infoline.

Moms Encouraging Moms

Moms Encouraging Moms (MEMs) is a monthly support group for all home educating moms and those who are considering home educating. Our hope is to help each other as we remember the words of the apostle Paul:

“And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.”
- Galatians 6:9

Organized by Charity Mile

Gymnastics

ARCHE Gymnastics are organized through Gymnastics Adventures (210 Leonard Street), using their instructors and their facilities. The cost is usually around $40 and classes are for independent 4/5 year-olds up to teens. We usually have a fall session and a spring session, usually on Wednesdays.

There is a play structure available for younger children, but the fee is not included in the Gymnastics registration fee and needs to be paid to Gymnastics Adventure each week:

  • Children registered in gymnastics: $3 per visit
  • Children not registered in gymnastics: $6 per visit

Skating

This ice time is booked for home educators and we have full use of the ice surface and a dressing room during each session.

As always, parental supervision of your own children is required and you are responsible for the conduct and the safety your children.

Any children learning to skate or playing “stick and puck” are required to wear helmets. Skates, helmets and other equipment can be borrowed from the Sport Venture Library or purchased used from Sports Exchange.

It's a strange world of language in which skating on thin ice can get you into hot water.
- Franklin P. Jones

Swimming

ARCHE Swimming Lessons used to be organized at a discount through the City of Regina. The last couple years, those discounts were not available, so they were organized through the North Regina YMCA (5939 Rochdale Blvd), using their instructors and their facilities. The cost has been between $60-$75, depending on level and whether you are a YMCA member, but there has basically been no ARCHE member discount.

Here are the levels/divisions we used:

Lil'Dippers Ages 3-5: Bobbers, floaters, gliders, divers, surfers, dippers
Learn to swim Ages 6+: Otter, Seal, Dolphin and Swimmer
Star 1,2,3,4 Ages 6+: To start in star you must have completed Swimmer or the equivalent levels.
Star 5,6,7 Ages 6+: To start in star you must have completed Swimmer or the equivalent levels.
Learn to swim Ages 6+: Otter and Seal
Learn to swim Ages 6+: Dolphin and Swimmer

Field Trips

Field Trips have been organized to fire halls, police stations, Regina City Hall, the Saskatchewan Legislature, the Regina Wastewater Treatment Plant, the Buffalo Pound Water Treatment plant, the City of Regina Landfill, and various other facilities.

As always, parental supervision of your own children is required and you are responsible for the conduct and the safety your children. It is very important that you read and understand ARCHE Etiquette.

“We came to the land to which you sent us. It flows with milk and honey, and this is its fruit."
- Numbers 13:27

There is currently no overall Field Trip coordinator for ARCHE (perhaps you would do it?). If you organize a field trip, please let us know so we can post it here.

ARCHE Afternoon Activities (AAA)

Our theme for the Winter 2017 6 week session is "All Nations - Countries and Cultures”. Each of the classes will be based around a different country every week, with each age group having a gym/active class, a creative/art class and a foods/snack class.

There will be a coffee corner available for moms during their free class. A nursery room will be available for those with babies. The age groups will start with 4 year olds and go up to teens.

“All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

- Matthew 28:18-20

Organized by Sheri Mead, Anna MacLean & Charity Mile

Co-op Classes

ARCHE Co-op classes are led by parents. Classes may include Art, Stories, Math, Science Experiments, Book Reports, etc. We don’t all have to be experts at all disciplines; we can help each other teach our children. There is generally a discount available if you are willing to teach a class.

“For as in one body we have many members, and the members do not all have the same function, so we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another.”

- Romans 12:4-5

Art Classes

There have been Arts classes organized through ARCHE in the past, and there are usually a number of community Art Classes that are offered during the day that may be of interest to ARCHE members. There are no current ARCHE Art classes being organized.

“See, the Lord has called by name Bezalel the son of Uri, son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah; and he has filled him with the Spirit of God, with skill, with intelligence, with knowledge, and with all craftsmanship, to devise artistic designs, to work in gold and silver and bronze, in cutting stones for setting, and in carving wood, for work in every skilled craft
- Exodus 35:30-33

We also talk about issues related to strengthening the family, challenges that are peculiar to homeschool families, and anything else that comes up. This is great opportunity to get know some of the other homeschool dads.

Other activities and events

We only display ARCHE-organized events on the infoline. That means that the organizers and participants understand and abide by ARCHE Philosophy and Etiquette.

However, there are often many other events that may be of interest to home educating families. We generally send those events out via email, but we may find the time to post them to this website as well.
