Typical Monthly Gathering
The majority of the people start arriving around 7:00 PM. Usually about 60-100 people attend the Monthly Gathering. If you prefer a smaller group, try a one of our many restaurant gatherings hosted at various locations throughout the metropolitan area. Check out the latest monthly calendar of events for dates, or, for more information, call the Membership Chair.
Except for AGOG, Babysitting is no longer available unless we get some volunteers willing to do so or to arrange it. If interested, contact our LocSec. In the meantime, contact our Gifted Youth Coördinators who may be restarting the Gifted Youth MG activity held in conjunction with the regular MG, and encouraging parents and kids to hang out together in a separate room where their children can play together under their parents’ supervision.
*For children under the supervision of an adult at the gathering.

There is no Monthly Gathering in October nor in November. Instead, CAM hosts HalloweeM, the largest Regional Gathering (RG) in the country. It's a wonderful, fun and informative event that runs Thursday through Sunday. Expect games, dances, programs, costume contest, and excursions. Find out more about WeeM. This year our great RG
will be held at the Westin-Chicago North Shore Hotel at
601 North Milwaukee Avenue in Wheeling.
The hotel is located on the east side of Milwaukee and the main entrance is at the intersection
of Milwaukee Avenue and Wolf Road (just south of Lake-Cook and
north of Dundee Road).
