Come hone your parenting skills and add to your "bag of tricks" for educating and raising happy, responsible and self-confident children in this high-tech world we live in. “Unplug & Play — A Conference for Parents” will equip and inspire parents and educators to be aware of and purposeful in how we manage and use electronics.

In addition to the featured speakers each day, there will be a number of workshops offered on a range of topics related to child development, early learning and parenting. You will be able to pick and choose from the topics that are most relevant to you and the age of your children. It is a unique opportunity to combine a fun getaway and gain valuable parenting skills.
