General Registration is still open but registration for the Children & Youth Program is now closed.

Big Tent welcomes families and is planning for the participation of children from six months to age 17, with programs that will operate in one of the Big Tent hotels during plenary, Bible Study and learning opportunity sessions.

Staff from Camp Hanover (of the Presbytery of the James) will operate age-appropriate programs for children and youth from ages 6 to 17. These will include favorite camp activities like devotions, arts and crafts, sing-alongs, games, nature activities, a challenge course, and of course, s'mores! The InsideOut 2019 curriculum, Peace Works, will be used to inspire participants to think about how we name and practice peacemaking in our lives and in our world.

There will be a separate program for infants and toddlers, staffed by qualified and experienced staff.

All children and youth will be with their parents/guardians in worship and at all meal breaks.

Advance registration is required, by July 1, 2019. The fee (per child/youth) for these programs is $95.

Parents/guardians will register their children for these programs as part of the on-line Big Tent registration process. Additional information and forms to be completed will be forwarded to parents/guardians who register children, or contact the GA Meeting Service at
