Children and Kids

Free Spirit Gathering has worked diligently to ensure that our Family Friendly Gathering provides a unique and wonderful experience for people of all ages, and many paths, to have a fully enjoyable experience. We continue to strive to improve the experience, and to bring in new programming that fulfills the need of the growing and diverse pagan community. If you are interested in helping the Academy programming for 2016 with suggestions, offers to teach/lead, supplies/donations, etc: please contact As with years before, 2016 boasts to be another year of transformation and enhancement to Children’s Programming, all for the better. Interest in providing classes and activities is growing.

Free Spirit Academy

The Academy Pavilion hosts a full line of classes, workshops, and crafts. There are also activities especially for young campers; such as an animal show and tell, a magician who is also a practicing witch, and a face painter. If you would like to teach, volunteer to help, or make a donation, please contact


Child Care and Babysitting

    Over the past few years, we have received several requests for Festival-sponsored childcare and/or babysitting services. Liability issues prevent the festival staff from offering these types of services. However, we would be happy to facilitate discussions among parents for this purpose.
