A completed parental consent form is required for all minors attending Furry Migration. This form can be found in the “Useful Documents” section at the bottom of this page, and on the Registration page. Minors ages 7-17 years old may be registered online or in-person at the convention.
Note: The parental consent form does not require notarization for minors attending with their parent/legal guardian.
All attendees must review and accept the Code of Conduct when registering.
15 years old or younger:
16-17 years old:
16-17 years old (Unaccompanied):
Having a form notarized means that it was validated by an official, typically a notary public, who confirmed the identity of the person signing it to be legitimate. The notary would then place a special stamp on the form, which tells us that the form was signed by the actual parent/legal guardian of a minor, rather than a friend with really nice penmanship.
Some banks, post offices, copy shops and insurance agencies will offer notary services, in addition to individual public notaries. If you’re not sure where to find a notary public, searching the internet is an excellent place to start.
This policy is in place for two reasons: safety and peace of mind. As a convention, we wish to ensure that we have diligent means to either locate or contact someone in the unlikely event of an emergency. As a parent/guardian, we want you to have peace of mind that your child is where they are supposed to be, and with who they are supposed to be with.
We require a valid, government issued photo ID for all adult and unaccompanied minor badge pickups. Only the registered attendee will be permitted to pick up their badge. Furry Migration does not allow attendees to pick up badges for their friends, significant others or spouses.
In the case of minors attending Furry Migration, the parent/legal guardian is allowed to pick up the minor’s badge. The parent/legal guardian must complete a parental consent form, and will be responsible for ensuring their minor child adheres to our Code of Conduct.
Photo ID is not required for minors accompanied by their parent/legal guardian. We do however, recommend that you bring something showing both their legal name and photograph, such as a school ID, should any questions arise.
