Children at the Festival

Children are welcome at the US Festival. All children, even infants, must be registered. Please register each child individually. For safety and legal reasons, two adult carers must be named for each child when registering and children must be supervised at all times by one of these carers. Online registration for children is available for this Festival.

Ages 9 – 15:  50% off adult rates

During Teachings

There will be audio provided in the World Peace Café at the back of the Temple for parents with children. Due to the proximity to the Temple, children will be asked to keep noise to a minimum in this area.

In the Temple

Children may attend the empowerment and teachings if they can remain still and very quiet so as not to distract others. Please do not bring babies or young children into the meditations. Children who disrupt others will not be allowed to remain in the Temple.

Children’s Activities

A program of children’s activities will be available outside the teaching session times. When you register upon arrival at the Festival, please feel free to visit the children’s tent for more details of the children’s program.
