Family Programs

Colgate Reunion isn’t just for adults. Families are encouraged to attend. Details regarding family-oriented activities and child care services can be found here.

Camp Raider Professional Child Care Service

Saturday, June 4 – book by the hour from 1:00–10:00 p.m.
Colgate has teamed with KiddieCorp to provide children ages 6 months – 12 years with a program they want to attend during Reunion, while providing you with that critical “peace of mind” feeling so you can attend event activities.

KiddieCorp, which is in its 30th year of providing high quality children’s programs and youth services to conventions, trade shows, and special events, takes watching your children very seriously. KiddieCorp has enjoyed a long-time partnership with the American Academy of Pediatrics, which has helped to establish KiddieCorp as a premier provider of event children’s program services. 

REGISTRATION AND INFORMATIONPlease note that preregistration and an hourly fee is required. Walk-in registration space is very limited, and cannot be guaranteed.


A list of babysitters (rates vary) is available at the registration desk in Donovan’s Pub, James C. Colgate Student Union. For information in advance, please contact the Office of Alumni Relations at 315-228-7433 or


Children under 18 are invited to accompany their parents to all meals, with the exception of the Saturday banquet. The class banquets on Saturday evening are adults-only events.
