Families at the Caux Forum
Families with children are welcome to come and join the Caux Forum. Please indicate your family’s needs during your stay in Caux on the registration form. Large family rooms with additional beds will be made available for families who come with young children.
Please note that the Caux Forum event teams will not be able to provide a dedicated youth-oriented, participative programme with age-specific content.
A play area will be made available during the Caux Forum where children will be looked after by their parent(s), legal guardian(s) or by volunteers designated by IofC International.
Prices for the Caux Forum are already subsidized, but families sharing a room can benefit from a reduced rate of CHF 100 per night and day event for each child (aged 6–14). Children under 6 will be free of charge. Children over 14 years of age will be considered as adults.
