Teens & Children
A number of workshops will be of interest to children and teenagers. Each child age 2 and older who will be attending one or more workshops or general sessions must be a paid registrant as per the price lists above (extra family member price). In some years, an additional fee may be charged for special programs (teen track programs, etc.). Please consult the PRINTABLE, mail-in registration form for more information on any additional fees for special programs, and use this form to register. Online registration is not available for teen track programs.
You may bring a babysitter to care for your children if you desire. If your babysitter will be attending any part of the Convention, he/she will need to be a paid registrant also (extra family member price.) If your child(ren) will not be attending any part of the Convention or Vendor Hall, they do not need to be paid registrants.

You can be the key to blessing another homeschooler, this year!
