High Sierra is passionate about family and we want to make the festival experience memorable for all ages. We invite children and big kids alike to enjoy and participate in a myriad of engaging activities and performances taking place all weekend long.
We try to create a quieter and more kid-friendly environment in the eastern end of the Shady Grove campground (quieter late at night, louder early in the morning). If you’re interested in camping in Family Camp, let your shuttle driver or parking attendant know and you’ll be pointed in the right direction. An on-site vehicle pass is required to park in Family Camp. Visit Camping and Parking for more information.
The Rockin’ Nannies are a group of highly qualified educators, professionals, and child-care providers who are back for their 9th year to offer services at High Sierra. They will be hosting a Rockin’ Slumber party from 8:00pm–4:00am in the Tulsa E. Scott building each night and will supply activities, snacks and TLC in a safe, fun environment while moms and dads enjoy some “grown up” time. Reservations, while available, can be made at the Rockin’ Nannies booth across from The Family Village.
The Rockin’ Nannies crew will be waiting to say hello at their Meet & Greet, 3:30–5:30pm on Thursday at their booth. This is the best time to register early before they fill up! After that their booth is open Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 10:30am–1:00pm to answer questions and take reservations.
~ Daily 10am – 2pm
Quircus is Quincy’s community circus consisting of stiltwalkers, dancers, hula-hoopers, acro-balance performers, aerialists, jugglers, dancers, fire spinners, belly dancers, sideshow acts, singers, musicians, and poets.

They are bringing games, clown school, and popcorn to the Family Zone daily!
