  • this must be your first OCEANetwork Conference
  • register using the coupon code POP2018 to get your discount

There is no child care available. If you choose to bring your children they will cost $10 each for children ages 3-5. Babies and toddlers (0-2) are free.

Parents of Preschoolers: Please consider becoming an OCEANetwork Supporting Family.  Your support helps fund the ministry and services of OCEANetwork.

Children & Young Adults

Young Adults (13 and older) are invited to attend the conference with their parents. We’ve arranged for special classes of interest to young adults attending the conference. Registration for teens costs $10 each. Young adults 13+ may also attend the Used Curriculum Exchange with their parents if they wish. 

Children (3 – 12): Children are expected to be with their parents at all times. For their own protection, children under 13  years of age are not allowed in the Used Curriculum Exchange. If you plan to shop in the Used Curriculum Exchange, please make alternative care arrangements for your children (have dad, grandparent or friend watch them while you are shopping). Registration for children ages 3 -12 is $10 each. 

Nursing infants and toddlers (0 – 2) may attend with their mother at no charge. You are welcome in the sessions during those times your baby is quiet, but we ask that you leave when the infant is noisy so that others may hear the session clearly. For their own protection, infants are only allowed in the Used Curriculum Exchange if they are in a front pack. No strollers, backpacks or other conveyances are allowed. If you plan to shop in the Used Curriculum Exchange, please make alternative care arrangements for your children who do not fit in front packs. (Have dad, grandparent or friend watch them while you are shopping.)

Grandparents

Grandparents can be a homeschool family’s greatest ally! To help them see a bigger picture of home education, we invite you to bring your children’s grandparents to the conference. Give them the opportunity to see the hope for the coming generations, rub shoulders with home-educated young people, and hear from some of the best homeschool advocates in the nation.

Grandparents can register for $10 each when registering on the same form as your family. This applies only to grandparents of children being home educated by their parents. It does not apply to grandparents who are home educating their own children or their grandchildren.

The Sand Dollars may be only redeemed in the 2018 Exhibit Hall (excluding the Used Curriculum Exchange) to help you purchase materials for your homeschool. (They are not redeemable after June 23, 2018, 5:30 p.m.) Sand Dollars cannot be redeemed for cash from OCEANetwork.

Exhibit Hall Only Pass

We believe the curriculum hall and the conference work together to equip you for the upcoming school year. Therefore, we encourage you to register for the whole conference to obtain the best preparation for next year.

However, we recognize there are some who prefer to attend the Exhibit Hall only. Therefore, we will be offering Exhibit Hall Only passes this year for $20 per adult, and $10 for children ages 3+. Children 2 and under are free.  (Children ages 3 – 12 are not allowed in the Used Curriculum Exchange.)

The Exhibit Hall Only pass includes:

  1. admission to the Exhibit Hall both Friday and Saturday
  2. admission to Exhibitor Workshops
  3. admission to the Used Curriculum Exchange (for ages 13+).

For their own safety, younger children (0 – 12) may not be in the Used Curriculum Exchange. Please make alternative care arrangements. (Have dad, grandparent or friend watch them while you are shopping in the Used Curriculum Exchange.)

Individuals with an Exhibit Hall Only Pass will not be able to attend any conference workshops, or keynote sessions at the conference. If you find you would like to attend the entire conference, you may apply your Exhibit Hall Only fees toward walk-in conference registration.

Exhibit Hall Only Passes must be purchased at the door. They go on sale starting at 8:30 a.m. on Friday, June 22nd, and will be available for purchase throughout the conference. Used Curriculum Exhibition shopping times for those purchasing Exhibit Hall Only Passes will be after families who pre-registered for the entire conference.

Single Parents

If you are a single parent raising your family alone and you are homeschooling or want to look into homeschooling, contact Joyce Padilla at padillas@oceanetwork.org.

At-the-door Registration

When you pre-register, you help OCEANetwork with our planning and conference logistics. However, if you have not pre-registered by the date Regular Registration closes (see the table above), you may still register at the door. Walk-in registrations are welcome, so if you miss the Regular Registraiton deadline indicated above, don’t hesitate to come to the conference and register at the door.

Refunds

If for some reason you find you cannot attend the conference, please notify Joyce Padilla at padillas@oceanetwork.org. We don’t want you to miss any of the great messages, so we will give you credit towards conference recordings in lieu of a monetary refund.

Online registration is now closed. Walk-in registrations are welcome!
