Children at the SDC

Children are always welcome at the Southern Dharma Celebration. For children ages 0-3, admission is FREE. Children ages 4-14 are admitted at half-price. For children ages 0-4, there must be a parent present 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 small children.  KMC NC will provide basic art supplies for kids, but you may wish to bring toys to keep your kids entertained during the weekend.
