1951 Conference: Family Roots for Mature Living

1 Leave a comment on paragraph 1 0 The 1951 Annual Conference was held at College Camp, Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, August 27–31. The theme was “Family Roots for Mature Living,” and the emphasis was on normal, positive values in family life and the development of resources within the family for meeting stresses and strains in an uncertain world. Meals and lodging were reasonably priced on a special sliding scale for children: Children under 2—$1.00/day; children ages 2 through 5—half the adult rate, which was $4.75–$10.25/day; and children ages 6 through 9—three quarters of the adult rate.

The goals of this reactivated committee were to interpret the relationship of religion to effective family living and to work at the problem of developing church programs of family life education. The Burgess Award was given that year.
