Parent Info

Sibs & Kids Weekend is designed to further foster the relationships between siblings and those left behind when the GVSU student went off to school. We all know that living away from home can put a damper on the close sibling bond. Providing a weekend where the student can host their siblings/guests and participate in many fun opportunities helps to build fun memories and strengthen relationships. In turn, this also gives you, the parents, a children-free weekend.

Sibs & Kids is much like Family Weekend that Grand Valley State University hosts in the fall. Sibs & Kids Weekend is designed for sibling, friends, and the GVSU host student. West Michigan offers many things for parents to participate in while the kids are having their bonding time at Grand Valley, check out the website at
