The Institute of Child Psychology believes in social responsibility, and giving back to our global community is an important part of our mission. As such, in partnership with our sponsors, we will be donating a portion of ticket sales to support the mission of CAMFED, Canada.
CAMFED envisions a world in which every child is educated, protected, respected and valued, and grows up to turn the tide of poverty.
As the most effective strategy to tackle poverty and inequality, CAMFED multiplies the educational opportunities available for girls, and empowers young women to become leaders of change. Our focus is on girls and young women in rural areas of sub-Saharan Africa. This is where girls face acute disadvantage and where their empowerment will have a transformative impact.

Did you know that at birth, the brain is one of our most under-developed organs? By the time a child is 5, the brain will be 90% developed. Development continues to occur rapidly throughout the childhood years, with new neural connections developing as a child grows, experiences, and interacts with his or her world.
Children who have experienced optimal environments tend to have a greater ability to make decisions, exhibit greater physical and emotional control, have a fuller self-understanding, engage in stronger relationships, and are able to excel in new and challenging experiences.
Join our Co-Founders, Tammy Schamuhn and Tania Johnson, as they take you through this early bird presentation on how to easily make sense of, and nurture, optimal childhood brain development.
***Only those who purchased a full weekend pre-sale or earlybird pass will receive this gift.
Thousands of attendees each day!
