Costs: Each family must pay their own expenses which include all travel expenses, food and lodging.
Who: All kids ages 5-14 (this is NOT a hard and fast rule. If there are younger kids who are well behaved and want to be on the program. . . . absolutely! Parents, if you can see that your child is restless, please let them sit out for a while and then let them join when they are ready)
Clothing: Each child should wear blue jeans and must wear a “Kids Time” T-Shirt. IF your child will be taping all three days, a T-Shirt will be provided free of charge and will be a gift to you. You may also purchase additional T-shirts at the studio. (Some parents choose to purchase extra T-shirts instead of washing them each night.)
Lodging: Listed below is a wide variety of lodging choices. You can also come prepared to camp. We do have showers and restroom facilities available. You must bring your own tent and camping gear!
