- Are CHILDREN allowed to attend?
There is an affordable, OPTIONAL Children’s Program that is being provided through Children’s Conferences International.
If you choose to bring your children and NOT enroll them in the OPTIONAL Children’s Program, you may freely do so as a part of your “Family Registration.” Please note that we do REQUIRE that any fussy or crying babies or children be immediately removed from any SPEAKING SESSION or from the EXHIBIT HALL so as not to ruin the convention experience for those around you. All children ages 12 and under are to be accompanied at all times by one of their own parents.
- Is there any charge for NURSING BABIES or very young children?
Not at all! Nursing babies – ages 4 and younger – are included at no charge as a part of either an Individual or Family registration.
If you have children ages five (5) and older that you wish to bring with you, you will need to purchase a Family Registration.
Optionally, you may also choose to enroll your child or children in the Optional Children’s Conference.
- Is there an additional charge for the REAL FAITH for the REAL WORLD?
Yes, there is a nominal “per person” fee for the REAL FAITH for the REAL WORLD. This is only $5 per person.
- Can a GRANDPARENT or grandparents attend as a part of the FAMILY REGISTRATION?
- I can’t attend all three (3) days of the convention. Do I have to pay for all three (3) days?
Yes, convention registration is for the entire convention. This is by design. It is extremely affordable, and is to encourage your participation throughout the entire convention…and to encourage the participation of your spouse and teens – even if only for part of the convention.
You will not find more affordable Homeschool Conventions anywhere in the United States! It is conceivable that you might find a marginally “cheaper” convention somewhere, but it won’t be a convention that provides the Exhibit Hall selection, Seminar & Workshop variety, outstanding Speaker roster, Worldview Teen Track, etc. that is included when you attend a GREAT Homeschool Convention.
- Do you offer any scholarships in order to attend the convention at no charge?
Yes, we have working scholarships that also help us with our HUGE need for volunteers.
In fact, nobody has EVER been turned away that was willing to “volunteer” for part of the convention in order to also “attend” a similar part of the convention at no charge.
- Are strollers allowed?
Yes, but not the double-wide or side-by-side strollers as these take up too much space in the aisles of the exhibit hall.
- Will I be able to buy recordings of the Seminar & Workshop sessions?
Yes! As a convenience for our convention attendees, most sessions will be recorded and will be available for purchase…on-site…during each specific convention. These are NOT, however, available after the convention or via mail order.
