What is a funshop?

  • Do you have a hobby or something you are passionate about that you are willing to share? It could be a game, a craft, a popular toy, or an idea.
  • Funshops are free to attend. Funshops typically last an hour, and they can be attended – and hosted – by anyone.
  • The host is responsible for any materials needed for the funshop, although some people request that participants bring items if they have them, such as materials for artist trading cards, at an ATC funshop.
  • Some examples of funshops include painted mandalas, shopkins, Pokemon, Dr. Who, my little pony, Hamilton, Minecraft, making a vision board, swing dancing…the list goes on and on!

UWG Funshops run daily throughout the conference, providing entertainment and learning opportunities for all ages. Presenters supply their own materials and facilitate their own funshops.  You may be required to bring items to participate in a funshop, please read the descriptions closely.

Have any questions or want to brainstorm? Email Jessie at funshops@unschoolerswaterparkgathering.com

Food funshops: we are unable to host any food related funshops.

AV Needs: We are unable to provide AV setup/access for any funshops. I can help brainstorm ways to include music, etc., if you need it (we love those portable speakers you hook up to your phone!).
