U-NOW will be hosting buffet lunches on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday as an option for your family should you choose. All other meals and accommodations will be up to each individual family outside of that.
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 submit them 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 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. There is always space designated for teens to hang out, host discussion groups, game, watch movies and more. Did we mention we will be on the strip in Vegas?!
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.
CAN WE VOLUNTEER?
In fact, this coming event, EVERYONE is expected to volunteer. At least one member from each family will be requested to run one adult talk/workshop, or one kids funshop. Adult workshops can be a discussion topic of your choosing OR one will be selected for you. As a adult workshop coordinator, you will attend a 1- time zoom meeting prior to our event to discuss expectations of volunteers. To volunteer for kid/family funshops, you may also choose something of interest to you and your family, or you will be requested to help with one that is listed in the schedule. Supplies may be provided for you, within a reasonable amount. This group too, will have a 1-time zoom meeting to discuss details prior to the event.
WHAT IS THE FAMILY CRAFT FAIR?
In the past we had a physical in-person event that was super fun for some kids and families, but hard for those who were intending to travel light. This year, we will be hosting a virtual all-year event. Once your registration is submitted to U-NOW, you may enter into the U-NOW online store for others to shop and support our own community. All items will be held within the store from the date of your registration until registration opens for the 2024 event. Or, unless you choose to withdraw your items before then. All proceeds go directly to you. Complimentary hosting and exposure through U-NOW website and all social media platforms. Links to your own businesses also most welcomed.
