SWAT Spouse Events

2022 SWAT Family Programs

***** IMPORTANT NOTICE! ***** Due to two of our instructors being unable to attend SWAT this year, the schedule is ungoing last minute changes. Schedule will be finalized by Aug 16. Please check in and adjust your schedule after that date. We are sorry for this inconvenience but we have new classes coming!
 

Hello!  Welcome to the 2022 SWAT Family Programs Registration System! 

This year's selection of programs and demonstrations are designed to provide fun activities for the family members of the SWAT attendees. Sign up NOW for best selection (they fill up fast:) ) Go to Lone Star Room #103 Friday 8am-9:00am to make a name tag, say "HI" and get information, if needed.

Please read all of this welcome. We've changed things up a bit. There are a variety of crafting classes everyday. Our annual favorites as well as several brand-new classes are in the list! When you come to SWAT, visit the Family Programs Registration table to see samples in person AND if you registered online, get a copy of your schedule! Join our SWAT Family Programs FB page to see pictures of the samples and more details on each class. 

Check the event schedule below and register early; classes fill up quickly! Create an account and check ALL the boxes (including lunches, FREE and meet and greet. This will create a complete calendar schedule for you. AND, you can make changes now!) All fee-based activities will require payment to the instructor with cash only. There will be extra kits available for some classes and many hand-crafted items for sale. (Some sellers will take credit for merchandise) Come ready to have fun and shop, too!

This year, our main room Lone Star Room #103 will be available as our "Community Store - to Shop, Sit, and Socialize" for SELECT TIMES ONLY. There will be tables in the hallway area to sit and do too. There are classes scheduled in #103 BACK (please respect the class in process and not interrupt). Bring your favorite unfinished projects to work on or if finished, move them to the Community Store to share or to sell on Saturday morning during our Share Time Event! Come ready to spend time with friends!

We will have lists of local antique stores and quilt / fabric shops in case you want to take time to visit. There are no classes Friday from 1:00-2:30, so plan those activities for that time! And of course, if you come a few days early, you and your friends can take the Silo District Downtown Trolley, venture out to the Waco Mammoth National Monument or Homestead Heritage Traditional Crafts Village, check  the Baylor Mayborn Museum Complex, the Dr. Pepper Museum, the Texas Ranger Hall of Fall and Museum, of visit the Genealogy Center at the Waco-McClennan County Library and so much more!

Register for all activities you will attend before you SUBMIT (that button is at the bottom), including "Community Shop, Free time, and Lunch" every day. You'll get a schedule by email and a hard copy when you stop by the registration table. PLEASE don't forget to make a name tag (and wear it) so we can get to know everyone (even our returning friends - I REALLY struggle remembering names/faces!). It's going to be a great year! We're excited to be back!
