Children's Programs at General Assembly

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: no-cost registration for children attending with parents.

For parents who need child care or programmed activities specifically for children, two 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.

Online Registration for Children's Programs

Space is limited. Registrations received after May 1 will be subject to a $35 late fee. No registrations will be accepted after May 31.

Program Descriptions

Child Care

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 will be available from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday, 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, and 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Sunday.

Children's Day Camp

Children who have completed grades 4 through 8, or the equivalent for home schooled youth (generally ages 10-14), may enroll in Children's Day Camp.

This year’s camp will begin with exploring personal identities, where those identities come from, and developing an understanding that one particular identity does not define a person but merely adds to their personal story. The participants will consider how our belief in “inherent worth and dignity” guides us in our relations with others and their multiple identities as they explore power, privilege and identity-linked oppression through project-based learning, social media activities and collective reflection. Finally, they will engage in opportunities to live out their faith in the wider world by reaching beyond the familiar in love.

The registration fee includes lunch and snacks. Children's Camp hours will be from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday, 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, and 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Sunday. Space is limited.
