Child Care

The Committee for Families Attending RUME Together is working to identify ways to make RUME more supportive for parents and children. For instance, for RUME 2018 we have identified transportation options that caregivers can use for family excursions (including the zoo). We are also working on generating a list of potential babysitters. We are not currently able to provide child care, but we are trying to ease the burden for caregivers. If you are interested in brining your family with you to RUME, please email Estrella Johnson [].
