Adjacent to the w/kids car camping area is a green grassy backyard for lawn games, running around with each other, and whatever fun creativity bubbles up for outdoor play, overseen by the Children's Team. At the edge of the greenspace is the Backyard Patio, a common space for all kinds of adventures for any festival goers with young kids. The patio is a place for caregiver grownups to socialize, while keeping an eye and ear on nearby kids. There are tables and chairs, in the shade, for sharing mealtimes or restful regrouping. A tiny healthy-ish snack shop. Perhaps a reading nook. This gathering space for the w/kids crowd will be shaped by the contributions of our community. What can you bring to nurture this space? The biggest gift is the younger and older peoples of your family! You are welcome for a short stay, an extended hang out, or anything in between. Programming plans for this area include: afternoon game play on the lawn, short pauses for ability inclusive Family Monastery style prayer times each morning & evening, caregiver resourcing conversations, and bedtime storybook reading as a group. To be clear and explicit about a basic assumption of child safety, the youngest kids MUST have a designated caregiver nearby when in the Backyard Patio Tent area, any children left unattended will initiate the Ranger security child safety protocol.
