Youth Program

Children and teens at IA are enthusiastically welcomed into the Youth Program by friendly faces and engaging children’s staff that help to fill each day with fun and new experiences. The program is filled with cool, age-appropriate activities and interesting topics related to the conference theme.
The Barners
The youth are divided into six groups:

  • Toddlers: 18 mos–3 years
  • Barners: 4–6 years
  • Larries: grades 2–3
  • Brookies: grades 4–5
  • Marshmans: grades 6–9
  • Seniors: grades 10–12

Note that groups won’t be finalized until close to the conference to accommodate shifts in registration. Groups are developed based on the number of children registered overall and in any given age group, with an eye toward keeping groups a fun, manageable size while meeting the needs of the youth in age-appropriate ways.
