Turtle Track (Childcare for ages 2-6)Given the large number of families who come to Arisia, we are happy to be able to provide programming for our youngest fans. By prior registration, we provide supervised childcare for those too young to enjoy the convention on their own. All children using this service must have special Turtle Track memberships to the convention. See the Turtle Track page for more details.
Fast Track (Programming for ages 6-12)Arisia's Kids' program, known as Fast Track, is designed as a con-within-a-con for our younger fen. With a purchased registration, they have access to a wide variety of program items, including crafts, costuming, a magic show, science, exercises, discussions, demonstrations, storytelling, and games. [See the Fast Track page for more details]. We welcome teen volunteers!
Kid-in-Tow (Limited membership)Kid-in-Tow memberships are free. They must be with and under the supervision of an authorized adult with a paid membership at all times. Arisia requires that there be at least one supervising adult accompanying every three Kid-in-Tow members.
Geeky Play Date (Sat/Sun/Mon Morning)Looking to meet up with other parents and kids at the con? Geeky Play Date is a casual, drop-in space for you and your children. Kids can bring their favorite toys and make new friends! Parents can do the same! Please note: this is NOT a babysitting service/venue, plan on tending to your children. Check the Pocket Program for the location.
Teen Lounge (Meeting space for ages 13-19)Teen Lounge is a space for teens only; it is run by teens, for teens. The Teen Lounge can be used to hang out, meet other teens, play games, and generally relax and have fun over the course of the con in a safe, comfortable space.
The hours of Teen Lounge will be posted on the door. All members are asked to respect the rules posted in Teen Lounge, for the enjoyment of all the teen members. Teen Lounge is staffed by at least one teen volunteer at all times.
