VSS is pleased to be able to offer childcare for the 2020 Annual Meeting!
Last year, our pilot year resulted in a lot of positive feedback from both parents and kids. Based upon the post-meeting parent survey, VSS is excited to make the program even better this year. For the older children, we are moving to a new onsite location and enhancing the program by building in some special outside activities!
CAMP VSS provides subsidized onsite childcare, specially designed for our meeting attendees! Onsite childcare allows you to enjoy the scientific program and spend time with colleagues, while the little ones create their own fun memories in a safe and stimulating environment.
CAMP VSS offers age-appropriate activities for children ranging from 6 months to 12 years of age (separated into age-appropriate groups). Activities include curriculum-enriched, hands-on, creative activities, arts & crafts projects, active games, and more. Each age group has a schedule of daily activities planned. Younger children enjoy toys, songs, and lots of attention. Older children play age-appropriate games and make arts and crafts throughout the day.
CAMP VSS is available during all six days of the meeting for half-day and full-day sessions. Don’t worry about feeding the kids–each session includes snacks and a child-friendly meal. In addition, all children enrolled in Camp VSS will receive a Friends & Family pass, good for the duration of the meeting. For families with multiple children, there is a 10% discount for each additional sibling enrolled.
Details are being finalized, and information and registration will be available in late February.
