Just for Kids: Accommodations and Meals

All children may be housed in residence hall rooms with their parents at no charge if parents provide their own cribs, cots, sleeping bags, etc. But you must indicate it in your registration so we can best accommodate your family.

If you would like a bed for your child, please indicate it under "Housing" on your reservation form. The charge will be $35 per bed, per night. Children 12 and under may eat in the dining rooms and attend reunion activities at no charge. Older children will be charged the same rate as adults. All children must be registered for meals in order to receive meal tickets.
