Here, childcare refers to a service by a company or an organization outside UBF. Unfortunately, we cannot provide parents with childcare on campus during the conference but we will provide a CBF program (CBF) for age 3 (potty trained) through 2nd grade during the general sessions and Bible studies. This is a change from previous international conferences. We are unable to offer childcare due to liability and contractual limitations with UIUC. We value the vital role of families with children in our ministry. For this reason, we have given housing priority to the parents who bring children to the conference (Location & Housing). We have the following suggestions for parents to consider.
Age 3 (Potty Trained) through 2nd Grade (age 7-8) will be provided with a CBF Program. Children will attend a VBS program during each of the general sessions and Bible studies. These sessions will be run by PARENTS in a rotation. If you sign up your child to participate in this program you will be contacted for each parent to volunteer once for just one session each and then be free the rest of the conference. VBS (Vacation Bible School) is a very fun, interactive curriculum with lots of activities, crafts, singing, videos, play and Bible study that will keep kids fully engaged during each session—the curriculum is all written out and very easy to follow and for parents to run with minimal training, everything will be supplied and prepared for you.
