NOTE: U-NOW will continue as a bi-annual (biennial) gathering, our next will be hosted in February 2022 and continuing every other year from there. Mark your calendars! Save-the-date (well… in mindset anyway). These pages will be updated as the 2022 details begin to get hammered out. But at the very least you will get an idea for how/what/where/when U-NOW has run in previous years. Similarities will carry over to our 2022 gathering. Thank you for your continued support!

Visit the Hotel page for further detailed information and how to book your reservation.
ARE OUR WATERPARK PASSES INCLUDED?
Waterpark passes are included with the purchase/reservation of your hotel stay (four or six passes depending on your room booking). Swimming in the waterpark is for hotel guests only. You must have your guest wristband to enter the waterpark.
IS FOOD INCLUDED IN OUR STAY?
Food is not included in your room rate or registration fee. Rooms include mini fridges, microwaves and coffee makers! The hotel immediate area also has a wonderful selection of restaurants.
WHAT ARE FUNSHOPS?
Funshops are a way to share what we love with others that love the same thing too! From D&D, to Yoga, to ATC, to Hula-hoopin’, to Tag, to Chess, to…… you get where I’m going with this. Funshops are a way to host a group of folks with the same interest, OR a strong interest in learning more about the hobby/passion/interest/subject, etc. Funshops run about an hour long. You do need to sign up to host a funshop. There is no cost/no fee attached. If you are a registered member of the conference, you may host a funshop. You set your parameters; age, subject, materials, etc. The idea is for this to be free for everyone else as well. So if you decide you’d like to host a Minecraft funshop, let folks know to bring their laptops. If you want to hula-hoop your heart out, let folks know to bring their hula-hoops and join you! If you’d like to swap magic tricks, let folks know to bring their favorites for some magic fun swapping! Get the idea? It’s an awesome way to make new friends and share common interests! To submit a funshop idea email us at firstname.lastname@example.org (or on your registration form).
IS THERE CHILDCARE?
Unschooling NOW gathering is designed to be a family event! There are workshops for parents as well as the funshops (for everyone), but parents need to be fully available for their kiddos. This means, please no unattended kids at the waterpark, throughout the hotel, and/or within the conference hall area. Kids young enough should always have a caregiver around, and kids old enough, should be old enough to know better. This event is intended for families to enjoy and meet other families.
WHAT ABOUT OUR TEENS?
Don’t you worry! There are plenty of things for the teens to do. Aside from the game room, restaurants, and waterpark, there is always space designated for teens to hang out, host discussion groups, game, watch movies and more.
WHAT IF I JUST WANT TO COME FOR THE DAY?
There are no particular day rates. The registration fees listed cover the entire week. If you live close enough to pop in, you may go ahead and utilize the regular registration rates and come as you are able to participate.
WHAT IF I FORGOT TO ADD SOMEONE TO OUR REGISTRATION?
Simply let U-NOW know by emailing with details of the person you will be adding at: email@example.com. Then return to the registration page and add that additional person.
WHAT IS THE FAMILY CRAFT FAIR?
It is just what it sounds like! An opportunity for crafters alike to sell their wares and support each other. What goes around comes around. Kids… Adults…. if you are a paid registrant of the Unschooling NOW gathering, you may have a table to sell your stuffs! ** Please note** this is for hand-crafted wares mostly! If you own a business that sells manufactured products, please reach out to U-NOW to determine if this would be a good venue for you. The craft fair is for artists and crafters mostly.
