2014 CLS National Conference

Childcare and Kids’ Conference
FREE for registrations through August 25th


SPECIAL NOTE: We have extended EARLY BIRD PRICING for conference registration through August 25th so that those who register with kids for childcare can get the best rate possible.  Visit the REGISTRATION PAGE to register you and your children.

CLS is pleased to offer childcare through its Kids’ Conference again this year – we are offering it to parents for FREE for all registrations received by August 25th.  Come and bring your children with you to the historic city of Boston!

The Kids’ Conference is designed to minister to your entire family by allowing you and your spouse the opportunity to fully engage in the main conference while providing your children with spiritually meaningful, enjoyable, and memorable activities, including crafts, Bible lessons, and games.

The Kids’ Conference will be created and operated by a wonderful team of committed Christian childcare professionals from nearby Park Street Church. The church’s team has worked with children of all ages for many years through teaching, enrichment, VBS, camps, children’s ministries, etc.  They enjoy seeing children get excited to learn – and to learn about Jesus!

Age-appropriate care is available for children ages 0-11.  Rest assured that Kids’ Conference operates under Massachusetts guidelines for age-divided space and child/worker ratios.  Because of CLS’ and Park Street’s firm commitment to quality, Christ-centered care – and for parents’ peace of mind – all workers are background checked and vetted through the church’s standard procedures.  We have some capacity for children with special needs requiring individual or special attention but sucharrangements must be made by August 31, 2014.  Please contact Peter Smith at CLS (psmith@clsnet.org) for more information.


Located onsite at the Boston Park Plaza Hotel, Kids’ Conference is available during each session of the main conference, including most workshops.  Kids’ Conference begins on Thursday afternoon during the early bird workshop session and continues through the Saturday evening banquet.  Kids’ Conference is not offered on Sunday.  For your convenience, children may be dropped off and picked up 15 minutes before and after each session.  Parents are asked to pick up their children for all meals as Kids’ Conference will be closed, and your children will eat their meals with you (meal plans are available for children ages 11 and under for $70 and $150 for children ages 12 to 18).
