Family / Kids Pod

Two kids playing with bubbles

Intention is a family friendly community and more kids seem to pop up every year.  Do you have children, activity/game ideas, an interest in playing with kids or a desire to support parents to participate more in their community?

Summer Intention: Enchanted Forest is going to be an amazing event with many children, at least 25.  It will be a fun opportunity for parents to co-create some awesome activities and experiences for the children.

Intention Gathering has a designated Family Camping Area that is in a quieter part of the property and has its own porta-potty, long table and smoking area. Please camp there with your children and get to know your neighbors.  There will also be a Kids Zone in the upper field for daytime activities. The Kids Zone is primarily a self serve area using donated or shared items from members of the community, so we ask parents and kids to please take care of the supplies, equipment and their space. Labelling your items can make it easier to retrieve them later.

Please note that The Intention Gathering as an organization does not provide childcare, and parents are legally responsible for their children at all times. Community members may support parents by supervising their children while they attend workshops or dance; however, parents must remain accessible in case of problems or emergencies. Please talk to Family Pod members during the event (Renee, Praxis, Andrea, Celia) to get more information on how the community supports parents at Intention.

Also, although meals are provided as part of your ticket, please note that they will be vegetarian and gluten-free and the meal times may not match your kid's eating schedules. There will be a self-serve breakfast option with cereal and fruit available in the mornings. Please bring your own food for kids who require different schedules or dietary needs.
