Children Under 10

Children are always welcome at the Southern Dharma Celebration.  Although an adult guardian must be with the child at all times, there will be a video link room that will enable parents to watch a live feed of the teachings while still being with their children.  KMC GA can provide basic art supplies for kids, but you may wish to bring toys to keep your kids entertained during the weekend.


You can request a refund up until Friday, August 31.

No refunds can be given on or after Saturday, September 1. Exceptions may be made in circumstances such as sickness or bereavement; please submit a refund request by e-mail to the Celebration Registrar at within two weeks of the end of the Celebration.

Any non-refunded fees arising from cancellations are donated to the NKT-IKBU International Temples Project.
