After morning worship, the conference programs begin around 9:30 a.m. Children are sung out of the Meeting Hall to their programs and adults remain to listen the theme speaker. At about 10:45, adults break into small discussion groups.
Eliot conferences include a morning program of supervised activities for children from infants through high school.
The children's and MAGs' (middle schoolers) morning programs follow themes consistent with the UU Principles and Purposes. At noon, they join their parents for lunch. Each grouping of children has a teacher and a number of helpers, depending on the number of children in the group.
The Youth have their own Youth Director, plus additional staff members, who are responsible for their program. The Youth also have a dedicated meeting space which is available to them throughout the day.
==> So much fun, I appreciated the children's program and the variety of events for campers. I especially appreciated the Salish Sea outing, The Last Night Festival activities, the opportunities for making and sharing music, and the existence of a central gathering place for Happy Hour. The whole thing was a really great experience for my daughter and me. Thank you so much!!!First Time Camper from Washington.
