Join HFA At Symposium 2020 in Baltimore!

You Spoke, We Listened!

Children鈥檚 programming is being refreshed for 2020! Symposium Camp for ages 6 months to 13 years old will feature enriching and exciting games, activities, crafts, expert visitors, physical activity and more to help our youngest community members learn and develop tools for life. An offsite trip will take place either Friday or Saturday.

Teen programming for ages 14-17 years old will be more flexible to allow teens to attend Symposium sessions or spend time with other teens in a chaperoned environment. An all-day off-site field trip will take place Friday or Saturday.

Keep an eye on this page for more information and contact with questions. More details about Symposium Camp will be shared as we confirm our exciting plans!
