The YAA works closely with class reunion chairs to plan a reunion schedule that includes activities and programming for children and adults alike so all may enjoy their time on campus.
YAA programs for all alumni and their families include Saturday’s “Morning at Yale,”which provides parents with a number of lectures and tours suitable for children or planned especially for them; the Family Festival on Saturday afternoon (May 25 only), with carnival games, a climbing wall, and other entertainments at the Payne Whitney Gym; and the Celebration of Yale Singing on Saturday afternoon.
The AYA contracts with Bright Horizons Family Solutions, a professional childcare provider, to offer “Camp Bulldog,” supervised programming for children on Friday, May 24 and Saturday, May 25 only.
Sessions are offered Friday evening, Saturday morning, and Saturday evening for children ages 4 months to 8th grade, with children divided into four age groups: infant, toddler, pre-school and school-aged. You may sign your child up for one or all sessions, for an additional fee per child.
In late winter, when registration opens, detailed Camp Bulldog information will be available on this Web site. The site will also outline the schedule for the reunion weekend so you can make your decision about childcare and sessions. Camp Bulldog reservations are made as part of your reunion weekend reservation. Space in Camp Bulldog is limited and pre-registration is required.
If you have additional questions about child care at reunions, please feel free to contact the AYA at firstname.lastname@example.org or (203) 432-2110.
Bring Your Own Babysitter
Some parents make plans to bring their own babysitter to campus. Reunion and housing fees for babysitters are the same as for other guests.
