Frequently Asked Questions
What if my tween is almost 9 years old?
To attend Tween Author Boot Camp, your child needs to turn nine years old by September 1, 2017. If not, please wait until next year to sign him or her up for the conference.
Can parents stay at the conference with their tween?
No and Yes. You can stay at the Provo City Library for the entire conference but not in the ballroom or in the classrooms with the tweens. (The rooms can only fit so many people.) There are many areas of the library where parents can wait. Parents are also welcome to leave their tween at the library for the evening and come back and pick him or her up at the end. Tweens are welcome to bring a cell phone with them to contact their parents if a need arises. Parents and siblings are welcome at the book signing from 8 to 9 p.m. in the ballroom.
*If your child has special needs and requires assistance for reasons medical, mental, or behavioral, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Who will be with my tween?
Each tween will be assigned to a group. (Yes, friends can stay together.) An adult volunteer will be assigned to each group and will stay with them the entire time. This volunteer will attend classes with the tweens, walk in the halls with them, and eat lunch in the same room as them.
How can I pick up my tween when it is over?
Tweens must leave the event with a parent or guardian. Please do not tell your tween to meet you or a guardian anywhere outside the Provo City Library. We will have adult volunteers by the main doors watching for tweens leaving without parents or an adult. Again, please make arrangements with your tween to meet inside the Provo City Library.
What should my tween bring to Tween Author Boot Camp?
Bring any personal items you will need. We will provide a notebook, pen, dinner, water bottle, and lots of fun.
How early should I arrive with my tween?
Registration opens at 3:45 p.m. and continues until 4:30 p.m. We recommend giving yourself at least 20 – 25 minutes to get through the registration process.
Parking is free for Library patrons and attendees of scheduled events in the building. A one-level underground parking garage may be entered from the east side of the library, off 100 East. Please see this website for more information.
