My name is Shannon and I am looking to start a Charlotte Mason group in the Baltimore, MD area hopefully in the Spring of 2022. I am looking for others who would like to run this group with me. If you're interested in putting this group together with me reply below 🙂
Our group meets once per week (typically Fridays) for nature walks, mostly at Richmond metro area public parks. Our group currently includes families with children under 8, most of who homeschool or plan to homeschool. Our nature walks are founded on Charlotte Mason's principles. Please reach out if you're interested in joining us!
The Living Ideas Guild Cooperative, located near Parker, CO hosts a monthly Charlotte Mason volume reading and discussion from 7-9:30pm in one of our homes that is open to the community. Please contact for details.
Our Book Discussion group meets on a Saturday morning, once a month, at a local coffee shop. We humbly come together to discuss an assigned portion of our book, which currently is CM’s volume 4, Ourselves. We have, over many years, read through other titles such as For the Children’s Sake, A Charlotte Mason Companion, CM’s first volume, Home Education, etc. All are welcome! There is no cost for the group, but we do ask that you purchase a coffee and/or breakfast from the shop where we meet, as they are kind and gracious hosts and a running a small business. The relationships grown from this group are priceless and we are always excited to add another kindred friend!
Read through the volumes with our monthly book club. Hike and observe nature with friends. Be educated at a conference. Rest and learn together at Family Camp. These are just a few ways our group shares life together!
Covering Madison, Orange, Greene, Culpeper, and Fauquier counties, we offer a large CM community covering a range of interests -- CM reading groups, nature groups, a co-op, handicraft fairs, and more.
San Angelo, TX
We meet the 2nd and 4th Fridays of the month for nature hikes and occasional meet ups with experts (e.g. in insects, wildflowers, birds, etc). We meet one Wednesday afternoon a month to discuss three chapters of Charlotte Mason's volumes (currently volume 3 School Education) and to work on a handicraft together (moms learning the handicraft so they can then teach the children at home). During the reading group meet up, the kids play in the backyard/playground while the moms chat. As we get more older kids, we hope to add a Shakespeare reading group (or even putting on a play) for the kids.

Charlotte Amid Cedars is a reading and discussion group for mothers that wish to delve deeper into the CM Method. We will read Miss Mason's volumes for ourselves, and meet one evening a month for engaging discussion. For the '21-'22 school year we'll read Volume 3: School Education. Charlotte Amid Cedars also offers a Mother's Education Course booklist, immersion lessons, workshops, and Mother Culture outings. This is a brand-new group that I hope will expand to include children in Natural History Club, Literature Club, and Shakespeare Club.
We are located in the Staunton area of the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. We meet once a month to discuss the current Volume in which we are reading. We have a list of about 15 ladies, and on any regular basis there are eight of us there. It is a wonderful group for fellowship, deepening our understanding of God and how He uses the CM method in our homes, and a place to build community. We have been the springboard for a group in North Harrisonburg area as well.
We are a group helping each other teach enrichment subjects to help us be accountable for them in our homeschool. We gather bi-weekly for 6 meetings for a fall and winter term. Participation in the Charlotte Mason Evening of Encouragement book discussion is required as well as parent participation.

An extension of our CM Co-op (The Arbor Guild), our Natural History Club gathers each month at a local 35-acre prairie reserve for an extended nature hike. Mothers from our co-op also lead the group in outdoor geography and object lessons. We end our time together by sharing from our natural journals (moms too!).
The Arbor Guild has been meeting since the Spring of 2013 as a multi-age (grades 1-12) living education community. We gather bi-monthly at a local community center, directly adjacent to a 35-acre prairie reserve (where we meet on alternating weeks for our Natural History Club). Parents share teaching responsibilities in a variety of subject areas, including Shakespeare, composer, picture study, poetry, literature, folksong, hymn, and handwork. We divide our meeting days into upper and lower forms for many of our subjects to allow for increased student sharing and also more challenging material as the students get older.
This monthly book discussion group is for anyone interested in learning more about Charlotte Mason. We meet from 7-9 p.m. on the third Tuesday night of each month, September through May. Since 2012, we have been reading slowly and carefully through Mason’s six volumes and continue to combine thoughtful discussion of the text with living book recommendations, CM article discussions, and a general sharing of ideas and support. All are welcome.
