Children’s Morning Program

Our children’s program offers a variety of activities specially designed for the children to create their own Summer Institute experiences. They meet separately and together, in various age groups from infants through those entering 6th grade.

Children who have completed 6th grade have the option of participating in either the Youth Program or the Children’s program. Due to staffing issues, this decision must be indicated on your registration application and may not be modified.

Nursery age children (to 3 years) will be cared for in a comfortable, safe environment each morning during the Theme Talk and Morning Seminar time periods.

All children will attend the morning worship service with their parents. Afterwards they will go to the children’s center to participate in a variety of activities including arts and crafts, games, stories and music until noon. The Adult Morning Seminars will end at 11:45. The Children’s Program will end at noon, allowing parents time to pick up their children promptly, and join them for lunch.

We encourage children and adults to participate fully and to treat one another and their environment with respect. All are expected to follow SI safety rules including bicycle helmets for all ages.
