Congress and CoMissionING Program


Improv Care will be looking after child care for ages 0-12 during the conference week at the Westin Hotel. When the congress weekend begins on Friday evening, the Improv Care at the hotel will transition to kindergarten and younger ONLY. Children who are in Grades 1-6 will be part of the CoMissionING Kids Program at Massey Hall.

During CoMissionING, children in Grades 1-6 will engage in an interactive top-secret mission experience from their seats beside their parents/caregivers in the Massey Hall programs. They'll be undercover agents, completing top secret missions that only they can hear, delivered to them via individualized communication devices! Four missions will be completed over the weekend:

Mission #1 - Friday at 7:30 p.m.

Mission #2 - Saturday at 10:00 a.m.

Mission #3 - Saturday at 7:30 p.m.

Mission #4 - Sunday at 10:00 a.m.
