Cost: Earicles provides free childcare coverage for up to 2 children (ages 2-12) per family during the Saturday morning conference lectures. Out of respect for all of our attendees, we do not encourage children to attend the conference. While the parents will find it extremely interesting and informative, children do not. If you need childcare coverage for a 3rd child, you can do this during the DCMAC online registration process; there is a fee of $50 for each additional child.

Theme: This year Bao Bao the panda bear at the Smithsonian National Zoo turns TWO in August! We are excited for the children attending Kids Camp (“Camp Bao Bao”) to enjoy activities relating to this adorable little panda bear and his birthday!

Timing: Breakfast starts at 7:00am. Families can feed their children breakfast and then bring them to Kids Camp (located in the Omni hotel) at 7:45am. Parents are encouraged to pick up their children immediately after the program concludes at 11:45am.

Registration: Please register for Kids Camp during DCMAC online registration

Children Under 2: If you need childcare coverage for a child under 2 Jahren, you can email Nannytainment childcare service directly at or call (703) 210-2778 to set up private childcare. Please tell them you are attending Earicles DCMAC as we have negotiated a special rate. Please note that childcare for children under the age of 2 is not covered by Earicles. Email with any questions or if you would like a list of other childcare service providers in the D.C. area.
