  • Boy scouts or girl scouts.
    I think most schools will allow a homeschooled child to play sports.
    look for a homeschool group, homeschooled kids can hang out.
    Depending on their age, maybe volunteering somewhere.
    YMCA or something similar

    4-H
    Summer Camps

    and going to the park. It doesn't have to be an organized thing for them to learn to play and get along well with others.
