Hey skeptical parents and guardians!
We really wish we could provide childcare for you. Every year, we try to get someone(s) to volunteer to do it, and every year it doesn’t happen.
BUT! We have left open possibilities. The Kalahari and Mojave rooms have been set aside for the kidlings.
A suggestion is to team up with other parents to trade off child watching and con attending. Skepticon can’t help coordinate that, but we will do what we can to help you do the coordination. If you need anything, stop by Skepticon Registration and we’ll see what we can do for you.
Skepticon will leave some crayons, coloring books, and paper (and whatever else we had in storage but haven’t dug out yet…) for entertainment.
We also have use of the in-room video and sound. If someone has a laptop or portable DVD player, we can work to get it set up to stream something online or pop in a disc. Again, check with Skepticon Registration for help!
We know childcare is important to our attendees, and we hope that someday we will be able to provide it. In the meantime, hopefully the community can band together so everyone can have a chance to enjoy Skepticon!
