ParentCamp 2018: The Unconference to Build Family, School and Community Partnerships (Regions 5, 6, and 7) (Parent Camp)


All parents care about their child’s education… they’re just not always sure what role they play in ensuring a great educational experience. ParentCamp is a time for parents, teachers, administrators, and community stakeholders to come together on an even playing field and hold face-to-face conversations about what is best for kids.

Every adult within the session brings an important and unique perspective to contribute to sharing strategies and ideas to benefit student learning, teaching and

There are “discussion leaders” in each session who set the tone for collaborative dialogue led by teachers, parents, school and community leaders. Sessions are geared toward elementary, middle and/or high school parents.

Like EdCamp, ParentCamp is always FREE and open to those within the nearby community. ParentCamps also incorporate social media and virtual platforms, open to anyone whether or not they attend an event in person.
