Childcare Information and Schedule

A full program of supervised activities is planned for children of all ages Saturday from 5 p.m. to midnight. For $50 your child will be entertained, fed, and closely supervised. You must preregister for childcare by May 15, 2015. Reservations cannot be accepted after that date. Late registrations and walk-ins are not allowed, so please register early. Refer to your registration form to register.

Babies and children up to 12 may attend the children’s program. Run by experienced college-age supervisors with help from area high school students, the ratio of babysitter to child is one to two or three. The program includes a family fun tent, sports, and crafts, with movies at night. Snacks and dinner will be provided.

For infants through age 4, there is a separate, supervised childcare area with space for naps, rocking chairs for nursing mothers, age-appropriate toys, snacks, and movies.

Preregistered children are required to wear a colored vest (provided) and a name tag to identify them as part of the program. These children will be assigned to a small group supervised by a member of our childcare staff.

Parents are required to fill out a medical release card and must sign their children in and out of the program at the main childcare desk. Parents must remain on campus while their children attend childcare.

Children should bring a bag or backpack for their belongings. Items to bring include extra clothing, a sweatshirt or windbreaker, and perhaps a water bottle. Please clearly mark names on all items.
