Annual Convention

Kids’ Camp

Kids’ Camp provides a means for parents to leave their children at designated times during the weekend in a safe, structured, and fun environment. Kids’ Camp is available for children with Down syndrome from the ages of six months to 14 years old and their siblings ages six months to rising 3rd graders (Rising 4th graders may register for the Brothers & Sisters Conference.) The camp will be offered in separate sessions. Registration is required for each session.

Children under 18 are welcome to attend general convention functions (opening session, receptions, dances, exhibits etc.) with registered family members and do not need to be registered as an attendee. However, children must be registered if they would like to specifically attend the Kids’ Camp.

Camp activities will include arts and crafts, live entertainment, educational games and other activities. A light, healthy snack and drink will be provided. A support ratio of 1 volunteer to 4 children will be provided. If your child needs more support or one-on-one support then Kids’ Camp is not an appropriate setting for your child.

Kids’ Camp Registration

To attend, a child must be register specifically for Kids’ Camp, by adding the child as an attendee to registration, selecting the conference type “Kids’ Camp”, and completing the necessary questions. Note that one person in the registration must be attending the general conference in order to select a child for Kids’ Camp.

Proper support of all attendees is of utmost importance to us, both for their safety and enjoyment. This requires much time and planning prior. We ask for necessary information at the time of registration. For this reason, we do not accept any on-site registrations for Kids Camp.

It’s also important to note that we often reach our capacity for Kids’ Camp prior to the registration deadline and must close registration at that time.
