FAQ:

Can I register directly to avoid the credit card fees? Yes, you can send an interac e-transfer to registrar Tara Rout at tararout@gmail.com. Be sure to give the full name of each attendee and the ages of any minors attending, as well as any dietary restrictions. She will then send your registration confirmation (tickets) by email. If you have any problems with registration, please call Tara on 780-893-8962

Do I need to print out my ticket? No, your registration will be stored on our online system and we will have your name on our list when you arrive at the school. Just identify yourself to receive your registration package.

Can I attend for only part of the weekend? Yes, but at this point you must still pay the full fee. Space is very limited and if we take partial registrations this may take a place from someone who wants to attend the whole weekend. If there are spaces remaining in the final week before the school, we may open up some 1-day passes.

Can I stay somewhere else? Yes, there are lots of good hotels within a very short drive of the Bennett Centre, in downtown Edmonton and elsewhere. We have not arranged any group discounts at particular hotels.

I can't afford the fees. Can I have a discount? Yes, some discounts and scholarships are available. You may also offer some voluntary service in exchange for a reduced rate. Please contact Tara Rout (780-893-8962 tararout@gmail.com) to discuss options. Your LSA may also be able to assist with your costs to attend.

Can I make a donation to the school? Yes, that would be great! Any funds we receive will go towards offering scholarships and improving programming at future schools. Use the donation button on the ticket page. You can also donate in person at the school.

Can I help with the programming? Yes! If you have an idea for a workshop or activity, or would like to volunteer to help with the children's programs, please contact Tara Rout (780-893-8962 tararout@gmail.com).

Can minors attend without a parent? Yes, as long as they attend with another adult who is responsible for their safety. Please let us know by email who will be their responsible adult.
