The General Assembly Planning Committee is committed to making the General Assembly (GA) a multigenerational experience and to making GA accessible and welcoming to families with children.
All children are welcome to attend GA events with their parents or guardians. Children who have not yet entered high school (or its equivalent) are welcome to attend GA events with their parents or guardians at no cost, but are still required to register (separate online registration for children attending with adults will be available here March 1).
For parents who need child care or programmed activities specifically for children, several low-cost Children's Programs are available. Advance registration is required and space is limited.
Children's Programs are subsidized by the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) at more than $300 per child. Please pay as you are able; the minimum fee per child is $35/day. Children may not be registered for GA Children's Programs without a GA registered parent or guardian.
Registration opens on March 1. Space is limited. Registrations received after May 1 will be subject to a $35 late fee. No registrations will be accepted after May 31.
Daytime Child Care for infants (6 months) and children through age 9 will be offered during General Assembly. Children will remain on-site and be cared for by professional child care workers in a setting that provides both activities and quiet time.
The registration fee includes lunch and snacks. Parents must furnish baby supplies baby food, or other special food. Child Care hours will be determined in October. In 2013, Child Care was available from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday, and 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Friday and Sunday.
Children who have completed grades 4 - 8 or the equivalent for home schooled youth may enroll in Children's Camp (2014 curriculum TBD). The registration fee includes lunch and snacks. 2014 Children's Camp hours will be determined in October; 2013 camp hours were from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday, and 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Friday and Sunday. Space is limited.
The General Assembly Planning Committee is currently accepting proposals for 2014 camp curriculum and direction.
