Childrens' Program

The CSQ family is growing every year. This means that the Children's Program grows broader and deeper each year, adapting to feedback from previous years to improve our program. Based on input from our older children, the 12 and older age group prefers to attend the adult Learning Circles, and so we encourage their participation in those offerings.


The theme this year at Carolina Spirit Quest is “our many faces” in which the adults are investigating the diversity of our spiritual community. This year in the children’s program we will be exploring the diversity of our magickal heritage through reading stories, doing crafts, and engaging in play. Our magickal heritage includes ancestors who were great warriors, healers, spellworkers, and storytellers. By participating in a program built around these concepts the children will leave with a deep appreciation of what composes our modern spiritual paths

Learning Circles for the Children

Children's Learning Circles will be offered during the normal Learning Circle times on Saturday morning, Saturday afternoon, and Sunday morning. You can drop off your children at the children's workshop area 5 minutes before Learning Circles are to begin to allow you to be on time for your workshop. All children will need to be picked up within 10 minutes of the end of the scheduled Learning Circle times. Please remmeber to sign in your child/ren when they are droped off and sign them out when picked up.

Some snacks and a drink will be provided during Children's Learning Circles, but you may bring any drinks or snacks you would like for your child (but please label them with your child's name).

Assistants are needed during the Learning Circle times, and parents are encouraged to sign-up. This represents an opportunity to play with the kids during your community service shift!

General Information

Meal Times and Snacks: As last year, children are encouraged to gather at the bell before lunch and dinner with their parents - we will have a brief announcement session and blessing of the meal. Then children (with an assisting parent if necessary) will be at the head of the serving line. Also, look for the popular snack table, that is accessible in-between meals, for children of all ages!

Photos: Throughout the weekend we will be taking photos of the children that will be used to make mementos of their time at Quest in the Sunday morning workshop. If you would prefer that no photos are taken of your child please let us know when you sign them in.

Clothing: Keep in mind that kids will get messy during planned activities, so dress them accordingly and bring a spare change of clothes and shoes to the Children's Learning Circles.
