Bear Club

"Bear Club was the best part. We would not have come to St. Louis because normally we would have to find a sitter for our kids. Bear Club made it happen for us - and our kids loved it." - 2017 Reunion Celebrant 

 "I wanted to drop you a note to say THANK YOU for the job that you and the team did this past weekend with Bear Club during the Reunion weekend. This is on multiple dimensions: content, venue, proximity to events, and security. My kids had such a wonderful time during the whole program, especially at the Juggling Jeff show. When we came to pick up our kids, we heard them laughing hysterically at his show." -Peter Froehlich, LA '93

Bear ClubBear Club allows alumni to enjoy their Friday and Saturday night Reunion events while knowing that their children will be entertained and cared for by licensed and bonded temporary professional nannies from TLC for Kids assisted by Washington University staff and students.
