Frequently Asked Questions (by parents)
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, 2019. 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. If you desire, you can stay in the Provo City Public 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.) Parents are also welcome to leave their tween 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 8:15-9 p.m. in the Provo City Library ballroom.
*If your child has special needs and requires assistance for reasons medical, mental, or behavioral, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
What kind of food will be at the conference?
Dinner will consist of cheese pizza, fruit, and rice crispy treats. The gluten-free dinner will consist of corn chips, nachos cheese sauce, fruit, and rice crispy treats.
Who will be with my tween?
Each tween will be assigned to a group. (Yes, friends can stay together.) A volunteer will be assigned to each group and will stay with them during classes and as they walk in the hallways.
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. Please make arrangements with your tween to meet inside the building at the conference.
What should my tween bring to Tween Author Boot Camp?
Tweens can bring any personal items they will need, but please keep in mind things can be easily lost in a crowd. Conference organizers cannot be responsible for any lost items. The conference organizers will provide a backpack, notebook, pen, dinner, drink, and lots of fun.
