Babysitting service will be available for the toddlers to tots. (under 6)
Camp Quest is offered for the kids six through twelve years old.
Teens are invited to all lectures. Additionally a teen hangout room will be open during all program hours for chat and games.

SATURDAY EVENING AWARDS BANQUET
Gather with us Saturday evening for an exquisite banquet. Whether you prefer the standard meal, vegetarian or vegan, the chefs are preparing a special menu designed just for us.
Following the banquet, we will be presenting the prestigious Richard Dawkins award to Rebecca Goldstein. This truly marks us as a Family Friendly event. Last year's recipient was her husband, Dr. Steven Pinker.
The Richard Dawkins Award is presented each year to honor an outstanding atheist whose contributions raise public awareness of the nontheist life stance. Rebecca personifies the goals and aspirations of our group and members, and exemplifies all of what Richard Dawkins has and continues to accomplish.
