Reunion Weekend 2017
For the classes of 2's and 7's, it's time to come back to the Mountain! Online Registration is open, so register today!
Reunion Weekend will kick off on Friday night with a "Taste of the Berkshires" dinner for all reunion classes. Saturday starts with a pancake breakfast in Benson Commons and then a full schedule of events from hikes, campus tours, remarks from the Head of School, an award ceremony for our Distinguished Alumni and Volunteer of the Year recipients, and an opportunity to get back in the classroom. On Saturday evening there will be class cocktails under the tent, dinner in Benson, and dessert and dancing with live music under the tent.
The weekend is family-friendly, so bring the kids along! They are welcome at almost all meals, and we'll have childcare and programs for older children as well. Click here to learn more about our Kids' Clubs. It's sure to be a wonderful weekend in the Berkshires.

If 33% or more of your class registers and pays for Reunion Weekend by Monday, May 1, 2017 each classmate registered by this date will receive a complimentary Berkshire School puffy vest! See the chart below for your progress.
1. For those who wish to stay on-campus, dormitory housing will be available. Staying on campus epitomizes the back-to-school experience, putting you a short distance away from all reunion events. You can register for on-campus housing during the online Reunion registration process. Alumni wishing to stay on campus may register as an individual and then list the family members with whom they would like to be housed. Requests to room with another classmate may be taken as well. On-campus housing is assigned by class and by alumni with families. Please remember that dormitories do not provide hotel amenities so you may want to bring along an alarm clock, an extra blanket and toiletries. Basic linens and towels will be provided. The cost for on-campus housing is an additional $60/person for the whole weekend.
Please note: Due to the abundance of alumni requesting to stay on campus, space is limited.
2. Should you wish to stay off-campus for the weekend please contact one of our recommended hotels or inns to make your reservation. Click here for a complete listing.
