What is happening Friday night?
Kick start the weekend with an informal gathering on the Friday night. A time to gather, meet, chat and be encouraged that you are not alone!!
Will there be any free time?
All sessions are optional, so you can take a walk or have a nap anytime. Though this is a weekend away and we hope you go home refreshed, it is also a time to learn so we encourage you to make the most of every session when you can.
There will be space for reflection sprinkled throughout the conference to allow you time to process what you’ve learned, chat with others and refresh your mum heart.
There will be some free time between the afternoon and evening session on Saturday to allow you to get dinner and connect with others and a late start on Sunday to allow you to linger over breakfast.
I have a baby, can I come?
Yes, you are most welcome to come and bring your breastfeeding/bottle feeding baby with you, however there will not be childcare available. Mothers with babies will be asked to sit at a table close to a door for quick exit as to not disturb others learning.
Can my family come?
Though the conference is only for Mums, your family can come and enjoy the location while you attend the conference. You can book accommodation for your family and let them enjoy time together – there is lots to do in the area.
Will there be vendors?
There will be no vendors selling homeschool materials though key speakers may have a few resources – cash only.
What if I change my mind and can't come in the end?
Unfortunately, due to contracts with the hotel, we cannot offer a refund after August 1, 2019
Will tickets be available at the door?
No, unfortunately the venue needs confirmation of numbers so ticket sales will close July 31. There will be no door sales.
