About SkillTrek

With an increased drive towards academics and eliminating other practical subjects, students are going into the world with serious and damaging gaps in skills and knowledge.

As parents, no matter how wide and varied our skill base might seem, there’s still a narrow core competency when considering the array of skills that there are to learn, even in the best-case scenario.

Why SkillTrek Exists

Actively involved within our community, we believed our children were covered when it came to life skills, but after a routine family outing with others, we were surprised to realize the gaps within our own family.

Having both typically developing children and children with special needs, we looked for a curriculum to help us explore areas we wanted to cover. We also needed it to be customizable and allow our whole family to learn together.

Being a homeschooling family for over a decade, we thought surely there was something out there to meet our needs. Unable to find what we were looking for, we created something that has worked wonders in our own home.

SkillTrek made such a fundamental difference for our family! Not only are our children becoming proficient in essential life skills, but they are using those skills within the family unit. We even see our younger children teaching their new skills to their older siblings. And as parents, we’re learning new skills, too!

A Program That Benefits The Whole Family

The day is not far away when you too will step back and say, “Wow, I can't believe how much they can do because of SkillTrek.” And you won’t have to hunt for these changes, as they’ll become self-evident.

When you call out for someone to make breakfast, and children jump at the chance to try out one of their new special culinary skills or replace a burned-out light bulb, take care of a blocked sink, a malfunctioning toilet, or any one of hundreds of skills, you’ll love hearing, “Don’t worry, Mom, I’ve got this!”

That's when you'll know how SkillTrek is building your child's abilities and character, and any subscription price is inconsequential.

Our Family

SkillTrek was created by a homeschooling and entrepreneurial family with seven children who have a whole lot of fun together.

SkillTrek came out of the heart of this family as they started to see surprising life skill gaps forming. Knowing that other families were facing similar circumstances, they got to work and created what they believe is the definitive program, flexible enough to cater to special needs and typically developing children alike.

In early 2021 SkillTrek was handed over to another homeschooling family to continue the journey.

Always keeping the parent in control and cultivating a springboard to pour knowledge and wisdom into your child’s development, SkillTrek is designed to work with your family and to strengthen family relationships.

The SkillTrek team is there for you and with you every step of the way. If you choose to blaze the trails of Eagle Heights Mountain with us, you are part of the family. The SkillTrek team is committed to getting the very best tools into your hands and continuing to develop the program so that it meets your needs.

Yes you read that correctly, we are listening and we are accessible. Our interest in promoting life skills and character development is genuine. Reach out if there's any way we can help your family along its journey.
