Bearkat Family Weekend has an à la carte registration style.  This is to allow families freedom of choice in what they wish to take part in, and the ability to participate at whatever pricing best fits their budget.  Your family may purchase one, two, three, or a combination of items listed on the registration website.  Whatever registrations you are purchasing for your family, you must also purchase for your student.  Refer to the descriptions below and the schedule of events to plan your weekend.  If you need to add additional registrations after your first purchase, you may do so.  If you have any questions not answered on our FAQs page, please e-mail
