  • Overnight stay in the residence hallsDoes your Mason student live on campus? Do they have a siblings or family friends ages 13-18? In partnership with Housing and Residence Life, older guests are invited to stay overnight with their Mason student in the residence halls. We also offer late-night programming for them to spend more time together and get to know other Mason students and Sibs & Kids Weekend participants.
  • Games & giveawaysIf your student and their siblings or family friends have a competitive side, they won’t want to miss this weekend! There will be plenty of opportunities for a friendly rivalry with a scavenger hunt, games, and recreation activities.
  • What do families do during Sibs & Kids Weekend? Sibs & Kids Weekend is Mason’s gift of relaxation to our families. This is a time for you to stay home without your kids or to visit the university. Find a local hotel and enjoy all that Northern Virginia and the D.C. area have to offer! On Sunday, we also invite you to breakfast for a chance to gather as a family.
