2019 East Children’s Program

While adults attend their selected workshops, children’s activities keep kids ages 3-high school busy and engaged. We sort kids into classes of 20 or fewer and other conference attendees lead these activities (co-op style). Don’t be surprised if your kids beg to return to the conference again and again so that they can see their friends!

Here’s a selection of some of our past offerings. This year’s activities are still works in progress, so we’re not listing them here, but this list will give you a good idea of what to expect:

NEW for this year: Young Entrepreneurs' Table in Vendor Hall

Children ages 8 and up may register for a spot at our young entrepreneurs' table in the vendor hall.  On Saturday from 1-2, during the Vendor Hall time, this table will be open and children will be selling their goods.  Some ideas for things to make and sell:  jewelry, prayer ropes, icons, bird houses, baked goods, scarves, hats, etc.  This will be cash only and children will be responsible for setting up, selling and cleaning up their table.  Please check the box on the registration page if your child is interested in the young entrepreneurs table to receive further details.
