What is the Eagle’s Nest Program?
The Eagle’s Nest Program will provide adult supervision, breakfast, lunch, dinner and recreation activities for your child. All activities are age appropriate and will keep your child entertained over the course of the program. It is our intention to provide your child with a wonderful weekend and you with peace of mind.
Meet our Team!
Our Children's Activities Chairs for Reunion 2016 are Abby Waldron '16 and Annie Nelson '18!
Abby Waldron ’16 graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor’s of Science in Biology and Chemistry. On campus, she was an active member of Pre-Health club, Tri-Beta, Chem Club, and Student Alumni Council. This past academic year, she served as the Student Association Public Relations Chair, the Class Gift Chair for the class of 2016 and the founding Secretary for the newly initiated chemical honor society, Gamma Sigma Epsilon. Additionally, she has been named the Co-Reunion Chair for the Legendary Class of 2016. After Elmira College, she intends to become a research assistant so that she may later enter a Ph.D. program in biomedical research with a concentration in biochemistry and/or pediatrics. Though her ability to care for children comes naturally, she also works to improve her skills through learning experiences and other opportunities. In addition to being CPR certified, she has gained immeasurable experience caring for children of all ages through caring for her own siblings as well as assisting in the nursery and other children’s programs at her church. The time that she has spent with both her family and the children at her church has taught her to be comfortable interacting with children of all ages as well as how to maintain a patient and understanding outlook. As a care provider, she feels that taking a fun and educational approach contributes best to childhood development.
Annie Nelson ’18 is a sophomore at Elmira College. She is a Psychology and Human Services double major with a specialization in early childhood services. While at Elmira College, she is quite busy on campus. She is an active member in Student Alumni Council, Colleges Against Cancer, the Orientation team, the Welch Hand Bell Choir at North Presbyterian Church, and she has begun working at the newly opened Starbucks on campus. This will be her first year working as the Children’s Activities Co- chair. She is very excited to be a part of the Reunion Committee and having the opportunity to meet all of you and your children. When at home, she is an avid babysitter, as well as a teacher’s aide in a classroom at a preschool for children with special needs. She has been working at this preschool for about a year, but has been volunteering there for as long as she can remember. Having so much experience with children has helped her become an extremely patient person, and she has learned about children's needs. She is very excited to meet your children and have a fun experience at Reunion 2016, and is more than willing to address any questions or concerns that are running through your mind.

Your Child’s Safety Is Important to Us
To put your mind at ease, several of our staff members are certified in CPR and First Aid. While attending the Eagle’s Nest Program, your child will need a sweater or jacket, rain wear, change of clothes, swimsuit, towel, carrying bag, sunscreen, pillow, blanket, favorite movie, and any favorite toy that they may want to play with. Clearly label all of your child’s items. Children who use a life jacket or swimmies should bring those also.
