Oregon State University’s Childcare and Family Resources office is sponsoring a campus-wide event on Friday, April 27, with “Bring your Kids to Campus Day.” The day, which corresponds with an early release day for the Corvallis School District, is a way to celebrate family, the importance of education, and to highlight family-friendly activities on campus. Additionally, it coincides with the national Take Your Sons and Daughters to Work day (April 26).
A number of campus organizations will be providing activities throughout the day, including KidSpirit, the O.H. Hinsdale Wave Lab, Dixon Recreation Center, and MU Bowling.
With an advance registration each child will receive a reusable lunch bag with a snack and coloring pages. Activities planned range from a tour of the Sea Anemone Lab to field games such as Frisbee and rugby.
While department heads are encouraged to make offices, classrooms and work spaces family-friendly during the day, parents are fully responsible for their children while on campus, and are expected to check in with their supervisors to see what is permissible. Some departments may choose to allow their employees an extended break to take their children to attend some of the free or low-cost events taking place on campus.
