Where will Kids Camp be located?
Kids Camp is conveniently located in the Windows Room on the Second Floor of the Tower Building in the Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel, close to conference activities. Visiting your children will be easy, yet they are comfortably away from the main conference traffic.
What will my child(ren) be doing while I am attending the conference?
SIGCSE Kid Campers will participate in drama, play, and arts & crafts activities. Older kids can participate in our planned computing activities, which include game or story development using Kodu and Scratch, video editing with Alice, and image editing with Paint.Net. Student volunteers will help with the computing activities. We will also have the ever-popular scavenger hunt.
Do I need to bring anything for my child(ren)?
Yes. A change of clothes is strongly recommended for all children. In addition, parents of young children will need to provide any diapers, wipes, baby food, blankets, formula and bottles that may be needed. If you have a digital camera that you would be comfortable leaving with your child, please bring it with you, along with the cable for transferring video/images to the PC.
How many childcare providers will be in the rooms?
Daycare provider ratios will be:
- 1:2 for children ages 6 to 11 months old
- 1:3 for children 1 to 2 years old
- 1:5 for children 3 to 12 years old
Student volunteers for the computing activities will be additional helpers and are not included in this ratio.
