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 weeks to 14 years old, as well as their friends or siblings (although, rising 4th grade, and older, siblings may register for the Brothers & Sisters Conference). Kids’ Camp will be offered in 5 separate sessions ($49 each), which are timed to allow you to attend General Conference programming. Pre-registration is required and sessions will fill up quickly (no registration will be available onsite).
Camp activities will include arts and crafts, live entertainment, educational games and other activities. A light, healthy snack and drink will be provided (no outside food is allowed, due to allergies) . 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.
New in 2020
Registered Kids’ Camp attendees are welcome to bring personal electronic devices or preferred toys. Parents will be required to sign a waiver in advance of attendance.
AAC fun camp will be housed within the 4-5-6 year old room. Children with and without Down syndrome will play and learn together as part of the camp activities!
Kids’ Camp Registration
To attend, a child must be registered specifically for Kids’ Camp during their parent or guardian’s General Conference registration process and have answered all necessary support questions (at least one person in the registration must be a General Conference attendee).
Proper support of all attendees is of utmost importance to us, both for their safety and enjoyment. This requires much time and planning prior to arrival onsite. For this reason, we do not accept any onsite registrations for Kids Camp. It’s also important to note that we will reach our capacity for Kids’ Camp prior to the registration deadline and we will start a Wait List.
Note: Children under the age of 18 are welcome to attend convention functions (plenary, receptions, dances, exhibits etc.) with any registered family members and do not need to be registered as an attendee. They are also allowed in the General Conference workshops with a registered attendee, but we suggest you bring a tablet with headphones or other silent activities to keep them occupied.
