Reunion 2016 Kids’ Clubs
Reunion is a wonderful time to share your "under the Mountain" experience with the entire family, and we would like to encourage you to bring yours. Berkshire offers the chance to enjoy both your family and time with classmates with our two Kids' Clubs: the Cub Club for children 3 months – 6 years and our Bear Club for children 7 – 12 years. You must pre-register for the Kids' Club programs and may do so while registering for the weekend. Click here to register for Reunion Weekend.
Our Kids’ Clubs coordinators have put together a terrific age-appropriate weekend for children, including games, crafts, movies and other fun activities. Below is just about everything you’ll need to know about bringing your children to your reunion. Please feel free to contact Jodi Rathbun at 413-229-1308 with any further questions.
The Club Club is for children ages 3 months – 6 years with child-friendly meals and snacks, and careful supervision. Children 6 and under will be located at Berkshire’s own daycare facility, Undermountain Child Care and cared for by our Undermountain Child Care employees.
The Bear Club is for children ages 7 – 12 years. This group will take full advantage of the Berkshire campus and have plenty of age-appropriate activities to do. In case of inclement weather, the dorm common rooms, the Berkshire gym and the Jackman Stewart Athletic Center are available for the group’s use. Bear Club counselors will be Berkshire “Reunion Rangers,” local Berkshire graduates, current students and our own Berkshire Bear cubs (faculty kids).
Parents are responsible for drop-off and pick-up of their children at the designated location and scheduled times. This will ensure a safe and smooth transition for the coordinators. Additional details about the Kids' Club activities and logistics will be emailed to parents in May and will be available at the Registration Desk upon arrival.
Saturday, June 11
8:30 a.m. – Noon and 5 p.m. – 10 p.m.
Saturday afternoon activities are family-friendly and all children are welcome at lunch on Saturday in Benson Commons.

Children are welcome to accompany their parents to all other meals on campus (Friday night dinner, Saturday breakfast and lunch, and Sunday brunch). Snacks will be provided throughout the day during both Kids’ Clubs. After online registration, parents will be sent forms via email prior to Reunion.
