Conference Care

Sensory Bags

Sensory bags are available to borrow from our event registration desk. Each sensory bag is equipped with a range of items to help you feel comfortable and supported, including a weighted blanket, noise-cancelling headphones, various fidget toys, a colouring book, and gum.

Sensory bags will also be available in the Quiet Room.

In the session rooms, you will find a small basket of fidget toys on the tables. Feel free to play and fidget, but please leave behind for the next fidgeter.

Quiet Room

At BCcampus events we offer a designated quiet room to provide a peaceful and calming environment for attendees who need a break from the noise, lights, and other stimuli of our event spaces. The quiet room is intended to help you stay relaxed and focused so you can make the most of your learning and networking opportunities. It is important to note the quiet room is not intended for conversations or meetings but rather as a space to take a break and recharge.

Lap Blankets

We understand venue temperatures can be unpredictable, so we’ve got you covered! We offer fluffy lap blankets to help you stay comfortable. These blankets are available to borrow from our registration desk and can be returned when no longer needed. If you are feeling chilly, please do not hesitate to ask for a lap blanket.

Frequent and Extended Breaks

We prioritize the health and wellness of our attendees by including frequent and extended breaks in our event schedules. We often adjust the start and end times to allow for more time between sessions, and we provide longer breaks than typical conferences to give attendees time to rest, recharge, and network. By doing so we hope to create an environment that promotes learning, collaboration, and well-being.


At BCcampus we organize events in a non-profit, cost-recovery format and strive to keep registration fees low or free. The BCcampus Regional Roadshow is free-of-charge, with the BCcampus Travel Grant available for B.C. post-secondary educators and instructional support staff who do not have sufficient funds for travel and professional development.

Photography Opt-Out Option

From time to time, a photographer is present at in-person BCcampus events to capture images to be shared on our digital properties and promotional materials. Attendees are always able to decline the media release of photos. Red lanyards denote an attendee who does not want to be photographed.
