Frequently Asked Questions
What is Lil Sibs Weekend?
Lil Sibs Weekend is an annual event at Cedarville designed to reconnect siblings (and cousins too!) after weeks away from each other, but also to give little siblings the opportunity to experience life on a college campus first hand.
When is Lil Sibs Weekend?
Lil Sibs Weekend 2023 is February 24–26.
How do I register my little sibling for Lil Sibs Weekend?
Should parents attend along with the little sibling(s)?
This answer varies based on the distance the family lives from campus, but it should be noted that no little siblings are permitted to stay the night on campus for Lil Sibs Weekend 2023.
Are there any required events throughout the weekend?
No. While there will be many events happening on campus during Lil Sibs Weekend, none of them are required for Lil Sibs to attend. We do ask, however, that each Lil Sibs here for the weekend stop by the information desk in the upper Stevens Student Center (SSC) to check-in on Friday.
Where do Lil Sibs sleep?
Lil Sibs who live within driving range may opt to stay the night at home. Little Siblings who do not have the ability to stay at home may want to check out the list of local accommodations.
When does Lil Sibs Weekend start/end?
The weekend starts when registration opens at 8AM in the Stevens Student Center (at the information desk). Most Lil Sibs will depart on Saturday afternoon, but some will choose to stay and go to church with their Big Sib. Lil Sibs Weekend concludes on Sunday night.
Where is check-in?
Check-in for Lil Sibs is at the information desk in the upper Stevens Student Center. Registration is open from 8AM-5PM on Friday of Lil Sibs Weekend. This is where Lil Sibs will receive their shirts (if previously ordered), schedule for the weekend, and a campus map.
Are there any age restrictions for Lil Sibs Weekend?
Yes. Lil Sibs Weekend is designed for little siblings (younger cousins, as well) between the ages of 6 and 17.
Would my older siblings be interested in coming?
No. Lil Sibs Weekend is designed for little siblings, as well as younger cousins, between the ages of 6 and 17.
Is there any cost associated with Lil Sibs Weekend?
While there is no cost to register Lil Sibs for the weekend, there will be various expenses that come up throughout the visit (meals, souvenirs, etc.). We recommend Lil Sibs come with at least $50 to cover expenses throughout the weekend. Additionally, the optional t-shirts that can be purchased on the registration page are $15.
What if there is an emergency with the Lil Sib during the weekend?
All emergency contact information should be included on the Lil Sibs Parent & Medical release form.
How can I get a Lil Sibs Weekend t-shirt?
There is a section of the registration page for ordering t-shirts. Unfortunately, in order to get the t-shirts here in time for Lil Sibs Weekend, we do need to remove this option from registration a few weeks before the actual weekend.
