Interested in Facilitating a Kids Area Workshop?:

String Summit is a strong family-oriented festival. We are very excited to announce an expansion to the Kid’s Area! Our children will be the ones to carry on the love for bluegrass and celebration of our extended family of kinfolk, and we want to leave families with memories that won’t be forgotten.

String Summit welcomes families to join in the adventure of creating, laughing and exploring at The Kids Area throughout the weekend here at Horning’s Hideout’s and Northwest String Summit festival. Hours of operation to be posted soon along with a schedule of activities, workshops and youth-oriented entertainment.

A key concept that we want to focus on is our impact at the event by re-using, recycling, and up-cycling. We have taken some traditional crafts and applied an innovative use from everyday recycled materials.

Our Kid’s Area features fun for all ages including crafts, kid’s parade preparation, games, new music workshops, and youth-oriented discussions on today’s pertinent topics facing our youth and planet. There will be various board games and books for reading. Materials for costume making and parade preparation throughout the weekend.

Everyday activities include: Coloring, Beading, Bubbles, Face Painting, Costume making, Dress up area,Board games, Yard games, and so much more!

Workshops: 3 With Feather & Frond; Fairy House Building; Flow Arts; Folk Songs & Puppet Show; Healing Family Message; Hoop Dance; Joy Now Kids Brigade; Photo Bomb!; Self-Empowerment ; Stilts!; Stone Balancing; Tricker The Squirrel with Zane Kesey; Whizpop Edutainment; Wildrovers; WordPlay

We have so many fun activities, arts and crafts, for youngins of all ages! A parent or responsible adult over 18 must accompany and supervise the participating youth at all times. Please note this is not a day-care or babysitting service. Volunteers cannot accept responsibility for your children. This request is in order to minimize the trauma of lost children, (or injured children) and to allow volunteers to facilitate the activities.

This year we want to encourage teens to come join in the fun. There will be activities for them too including board games, yard games, competitions for prizes and workshops of all kinds! Although for teens we are most exited to have Joy Now Foundation here to give the older kids some great lessons on circus performance acts and much more. Some activities in the workshops may require parents approval.
