Everything you need to know about where to stay, where to eat, and what to see. Make sure you read through the FAQs below for information on everything from wristbands to childcare.
Wristbands - are our way of knowing who is registered
attend the conference. All conference attendees are
to wear their wristbands. Without the wristband, you will not be granted access
to the Exhibit Hall or workshops. A $3 fee will be charged for replacement of
Name Tags - to help you recognize various event personnel at the conference, you will notice them wearing color coded name tags. ORANGE - Conference Committee, BLUE - Exhibitors, YELLOW – Speakers, PURPLE - Chat Group Leaders and SCOPE Board Members, and RED - Manpower/Volunteers
Workshop Size - is arranged with the committee’s best efforts to choose rooms that fit the speaker and their audience. If a room reaches full capacity, a sign will be posted. Due to Fire Marshall regulations and for your safety, we will be unable to allow entry. Audio CD’s are available for purchase should this situation occur.
Children are a blessing from the Lord. There is no onsite child-care available for children 12 years and under. Parents who bring their children agree to keep all children accompanying them supervised at all times, assume all risk which may be encountered at the Conference, and accept financial responsibility for any damage caused by the children under their supervision. Teens 13-18 who are registered may attend and must wear their wristbands at all times. Nursing babies are also welcome.
On-Site CD Recordings - No personal recording or videotaping permitted. All workshops will be recorded.
Cellular Phones - We realize cell phones are a great resource for parents who are away from their children. Please be considerate of others by setting your ringer to vibrate only and exit the workshop rooms if you need to answer a call.
Bargain Shoppers - We all enjoy a good bargain. You will find many conference only specials throughout the Exhibit Hall. Please be mindful that our exhibitors help make our conference possible. They expend a great deal of time, effort, and money to present their materials to you. They will gladly spend time answering your questions and sharing their knowledge about their products. If you take their time and reap the benefits of their knowledge, please honor them with your purchase. If purchases are not sufficient, vendors may be financially unable to return in the future.
Refunds - No refunds for conference.
DISCLAIMER - The presence of a speaker, exhibitor, or advertiser at the conference or in our printed material does NOT constitute and endorsement of their product or service. Neither does it imply that a comprehensive evaluation of their product/service has been made. We endeavor to present exhibitors and speakers whose materials honor Jesus. Our first choice is to always have a Christian presenting these materials. However, if a speaker or exhibitor has materials that would be of benefit to home educators, their participation is not restricted because of religious doctrine.
Conference Evaluation - You will find Conference Evaluation Forms available throughout the conference. Please take the time to fill them out and return them to the SCOPE Booth or Information Booth. The Feedback you provide is valuable information in improving for future SCOPE Conferences to benefit you and your family. For your convenience we will also post the evaluation form on our website after the conference.
