Childcare

Though Iron Sharpens Iron is an adult conference, as a benefit to our attending families, childcare will be offered for children ages 10 and under during the plenary sessions only. Children age 10 and under are not required to pay a registration fee, but parents will need to pre-register for this service (when you register for the conference). Childcare is $15 per family for the entire conference. Children’s meal tickets ($5/ticket ages 4-12; 3 and under free) will be available for purchase at the reception desk. Emmaus does not provide family lodging.
