Convention FAQ’s

FAQ: What does it co$t to attend a CHEO Convention?

All of our convention pricing is listed here. Remember that a family registreation inlcudes father, mother, unmarried children and non-homeschooling grandparents.

FAQ: Are children allowed at a CHEO Convention?

Yes! Children are able to attend with their parents at no extra charge when a Family Registration is purchased. This allows more people to come and be encouraged, even if they are unable to find childcare. We ask that children be supervised at all times and that parents be sensitive to others in workshops, if their children become loud or squirmy. A lovely Nursing Mother’s Room is once again provided.

Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD,The fruit of the womb is a reward.
Psalm 127:3
