2021 UWG Registration

Online registration for the 2021 MAY UWG is now OPEN!


UWG 2021 Registration Disclaimer:



We are currently applying 2020 registration fees toward 2021 registration. If you registered your family to attend UWG 2020, you will be given the option of registering your family for UWG 2021 or transferring your registration to another family. It is your responsibility to find a family to transfer to. Registration fees are NOT refundable. Be aware that at this time we are not 100% sure that we will be able to host our 2021 event; we are keeping track of state mandates and the Kalahari Resort is keeping us updated as well. If we are able to host our event, we will be complying with any and all state and resort regulations regarding social distancing and masking, and ALL attendees will be expected to comply as well.

We do currently have dates reserved for UWG 2022, however, in the event that our 2021 gathering is cancelled, we will NOT be able to transfer any previously paid registrations to our 2022 event. We appreciate your patience and understanding while we attempt to plan accordingly.


IF you registered for the May or Dec 2020 Gathering and would like to transfer your registration to the 2021 Gathering, please do NOT use the PayPal link below to pay again. Instead, complete the 2020 Registration Transfer to 2021 form.

Regular registration ($80) will run from Feb 14th until April 23, 2021. Onsite registration will be available during the conference for $120 per family. Remember, your registration for UWG is separate from your reservations for a room at Kalahari.

Please be aware that the registration form does not currently work on cell phones. If you can’t register on a computer, make sure to email registration@unschoolerswaterparkgathering.com after you make your PayPal payment so your registration can be completed.

Your UWG registration will enable you to reserve our special discounted rates at Kalahari and to participate in all UWG events. Registration fees are per family. Registration is not complete until payment is made and the registration information form has been completed. You should be redirected to the registration page from PayPal. If you do not get automatically redirected after your payment, click on the “Return to Merchant” link and you will be directed to the registration page.

After registering for the conference you’ll need to contact the Kalahari to make your room reservations. The Kalahari subsidizes our conference based on the number of rooms booked by our group, so we require that our conference attendees stay at the resort (for more info on room rates click here). Upon completion of the conference registration process, you’ll be directed to a page that will give you information about reserving your room(s) at the Kalahari at our discounted rates.

Conference Registration is a MULTI-PART PROCESS.

To be fully registered you must:

    1. CLICK THE PAYPAL link below and complete the Paypal payment process. WAIT TO BE REDIRECTED to the ‘SUBMIT REGISTRATION INFORMATION’ page at the UWG website.
      NOTE: If Paypal doesn’t automatically redirect you, look on the Paypal page for the “Return to Merchant” link. Click it to be directed to the registration information form. If you get an error message, please email registration@unschoolerswaterparkgathering.com and we’ll help you finish your registration. In past years, the form would not work on some mobile devices.


  1. COMPLETELY FILL OUT and SUBMIT the registration information on the form. You’ll be given the opportunity to express interest in volunteering when you register. This is not a commitment, but will add you to the early, priority sign-up period for volunteer time slots. For more information about the volunteering opportunities you can click here.

    • 1-FROM PAYPAL and 1-FROM WORDPRESS with the subject: UWG Registration WordPress Confirmation-New 2021 Registration.
    • If you DON’T RECEIVE TWO Confirmation emails, it’s possible one or both of them were caught in your Spam filter. Check your Spam folder and if you haven’t received them both, please contact Karen Beaton @ registration@unschoolerswaterparkgathering.com.


  2. Once you’ve completed the conference registration process on the UWG website, you’ll see a registration confirmation screen that will provide additional details about making your room reservations with the Kalahari. Don’t forget this very important step!!


Please read the info ABOVE before going to PayPal!

UWG 2021 Registration $80

Please be aware that even though it will be possible to register onsite, the Kalahari subsidizes our conference based on the number of rooms booked by our group, so we require that our conference attendees stay at the resort even if they plan to register for the conference onsite. (For more info on room rates click here).
