The Wise Traditions Conference is pleased to provide a children’s program for this year’s meeting. $210 for Friday – Sunday, includes Friday lunch, Friday dinner, Saturday lunch and Sunday brunch or $100 per child with no meals. Children 3 – 12 who are potty trained are welcome to Wise Traditions 2011 as long as they are enrolled in our children’s program. For the sake of other conference attendees, we ask that parents refrain from bringing children to the conference sessions.

Please note: We will serve nourishing traditional food (including fruit and natural sweeteners) but we cannot cater to special diets in the children’s program. There may be casein and gluten in the children’s lunches and snacks. Parents will need to supply their own food if their children are on special diets.

Also note: A special room has been set aside for mothers of infants who want to attend the conference. There will be a live audio feed from one of the sessions to that room throughout the day’s events. There will be no child care provided for infants and children under age 3.


As always, the conference will feature delicious traditional foods.  As we did last year, we will also provide gluten-free, casein-free alternative meals. Participants requiring gluten-free or casein-free meals will be served in a separate buffet with the exception of the Saturday banquet which is GF/CF with items containing gluten and/or casein served on the side. If you wish to have this option, please select the GF/CF option on your registration form.
