For those with kids and teens ages 4-14, we are pleased to offer Camp Reunion on Friday and Saturday evenings, June 2 and 3, from 6-11 p.m. We have partnered with a local, public, charter school, Community School of Davidson (CSD), located at 565 Griffith Street, Davidson. The K-7 facility is less than a mile from the Davidson campus, near the Harris Teeter off Exit 30 of I77. This partnership allows us to offer age-appropriate facilities, staff and resources. Kids and teens ages 4-14 will enjoy a variety of structured and unstructured activities both indoors and outdoors (weather permitting). Sample pastimes include use of the playground and/or gym, sack races, kickball tournaments, time in the Gaga Pit, board games, Legos, beach volleyball, tick tac toe relays, scooter races, movies and more.
The price is $60/person/night, including dinner and snacks. (Dinner on Friday night will be pizza and fruit and on Saturday night will be chicken nuggets and fruit. Snacks will be a variety of pretzels, goldfish, granola bars, animal crackers and more.) Transportation is not provided.
If you would like your kid or teen to participate, sign up when you complete your Reunion Weekend registration. Be sure you have listed all kids and teens attending Camp Reunion on your registration form and note any dietary restrictions. Pre-registration is encouraged to maintain a safe adult-to-child ratio. There is limited space for walk up registrations ($10 more for day-of registration on-site), so be so to register your kid/teen with your overall Reunion Weekend registration.
The Community School of Davidson is a separate and independent organization, and is responsible for and manages its own activities, including Camp Reunion. Davidson is not directing, supervising, or controlling the Camp Reunion program hosted by the Community School of Davidson, and as such Davidson is not responsible for the Community School of Davidson’s acts or omissions. Parents will need to complete a registration and waiver form prior to arrival at Community School of Davidson.
A list of Davidson community members who have expressed interest in serving as babysitters will be available to alumni interested in hiring a babysitter during Reunion Weekend. To request a list, please email firstname.lastname@example.org closer to Reunion Weekend. All questions regarding scheduling, availability and payment should be made directly with the babysitter. Please note the college is providing this list as a convenience for alumni and has not vetted these babysitters. The college does not provide training or supervision of the babysitters, nor has it performed background checks or confirmed the COVID vaccination status on the babysitters listed.
