Anyone bringing kids/family?

Trying to plan things out - I probably want to bring husband and 5 year old girl.  Anyone else bringing family?  She is an only child and would love to be around some other kids at some point during the week!

Agreed!

I would love to say, "small investment, huge return", but I know that Instructure's swag investment is gigantic.

Hey Everyone,

It looks like there will be plenty of things to do around Keystone for family members. If you have smaller kids that require daycare, here are the options at the resort:

Local babysitting services are:

Deactivated userWe bring the munchkins! We anchor our family vacations visiting National Parks around the conference.

It's also helpful that our girls (14 and 10) are STEM enthusiasts, so they had blast at InstructureCon 2014 & 2015.

They loved Park City and are looking forward to Keystone, CO.

We'll be going and bringing our daughter, who will be almost one.  Those child-care rates seem insanely high!  It'll cost almost as much per day as we normally spend for a week!  Is this just me?  It looks like it could be much less expensive per child to coordinate with someone else who is bringing a little one.  I'm open to other suggestions or ideas, as well.

We found it better to just bring our babysitter with us. Smiley HappyIMG_9521 (2).jpg

In this case it was my Mom (three years running) and it worked out great because she could meet up with us in between sessions or at lunch and then when we needed to be off again it was no big deal. It was also nice for the evening stuff because that way we could fully participate and when my daughter got tired/cranky/bored, my Mom could just take her back to the room. I will also say that my Mom had a really good time at InstructureCon (all three years!) and overall it made for fun family time when we were all together!

I wish this was an option for us!  It sounds wonderful.

Is that your Mom in that picture Kona? She's beautiful!

For our first couple years, we also brought an extra person to help keep track of our granddaughter. Worked out great for us.

Yep, it was the best of both worlds. Sorry it wouldn't work out for you!

Thanks kelley.meeusen@cptc.edu​! She'll love to hear that, especially since she just retired after 38 years of teaching!

Maybe your mom wants to watch another little person? Smiley Wink
