The kids’ program runs during the morning and evening sessions. You can drop your kids off at 8:30 am and their session will begin at 9:00 AM. Pick up is at 12:30 pm. In the evening, you can drop your kids off at 6:30 pm and their session starts at 7. Kids can be picked up at 10 pm.
During the pre-registration process on our website, we collect all the information we need to make an account for your child in our KidCheck program.
When you arrive for the initial check-in, please join the registration line according to last name. One of our volunteers will direct you to enter your phone number to check-in your child. Then, our printer will print two stickers: one for you and one for your child. Your child will wear their sticker. You will use your sticker during check-out. You and your child will be assigned a unique code on the stickers to match you both during check-out. Any important information indicated on the form you submitted online will also appear on their sticker (i.e. allergies, no photography, etc.).
At registration, we will provide a GAK schedule and color roster. The color roster will let you know which group your child is in for the week, and who their team leader is.
If you need to update any important information, please do not hesitate to call 717-796-9866, email firstname.lastname@example.org or let one of our volunteers know at check-in.
Kirsten Ruhl is leading the kids’ program. Kirsten, her team, and Will Hart are the main speakers.
If you know for some reason you will be unable to pick up your kids during the specified time, please make arrangements ahead of time for your child to be picked up by your 2nd guardian. The 2nd guardian’s information must be included when you are registering your child. If you are worried about missing impartation or part of the session that has gone late, please remember that you can pick up your kids and go back into the adult session with them.
You do not need to bring your email confirmation; we will have you and your children on our list. Registration for parents begins at 4 PM on October 18th, and kids registration will begin at 6:30 PM. Please refer to our check-in process column for further information on check-in and drop-off.
Due to safety regulations, none of the parents are allowed into the kids’ program. All adults that are in that room have gone through paperwork and other clearances. This is to protect your children. The kids typically adjust quickly to the group setting. If they have any issues adjusting, we will contact you via the number you gave us on your registration.
If your child is having an encounter with the Lord and cannot get up during check-out, a GAK team member will walk you to your child so you can carry them out.
There is teaching, worship, and lots of fun activities. Some of the evening sessions also feature a guest speaker and a time of impartation. We will provide a schedule including the classes upon check-in.
