Extra Kids Policy for HSC Events


HSC events are first and foremost FAMILY events. We strongly encourage families to attend together. However, we do allow families to bring an extra friend or two along with them. Every child or teen must be staying with a registered responsible adult.

If you bring an extra child or teen, it is very important to understand your responsibilities.

You will be asked to sign a statement saying you are the “registered responsible adult” for each extra child/teen. You must be at least 25 years old. If you sign this statement, you are agreeing that any child or teen who is with you is entirely your responsibility. You should know the extra children/teens and their parents well. They should be staying with you at the event (in your hotel room at conference, for example), and you should be supervising them the same way you supervise your own children. As the responsible adult, you are legally responsible for them and should be sure to have a medical release form from their parent.

We do NOT allow children or teens at events unless they are being supervised and cared for by a registered parent (at least 25 years old) who has invited them to stay with them and will take full responsibility for that child or teen’s safety, welfare, and behavior.
