Need Activity Ideas?

Many generations will be gathering for your reunion, so it’s great to consider in advance what might be great for the various ages and personalities that will be gathering.

Some ideas that would include everyone are a great place to start. You don’t always need to go to an expensive attraction or amusement, why not personalize activities and get people involved in planning them. Some great games to play as a group may be Group Charades, Bingo and Trivia.

Plan a worship service and a memorial to those who are not with you. These types of personal celebrations can be impactful for all ages. What are favorite Bible Verses and Hymns of the elders in your group? Do the children know fun new songs from Sunday School or Bible Camp? Remembering those who have gone on before is always a great way for the younger generation to know and remember the older one.

Group Social Marketing. Document your reunion with a group Facebook page where everyone is allowed to share and post photographs and special times help during your reunion.

Have an eating contest! Does your family have favorite foods? An example might be a family from Iowa who brings Iowa Sweet Corn to the reunion each year wherever it is held. There is a corn eating contest one evening where prizes are awarded. What a sweet way for a family to connect.

Photo contests can be fun, puzzles are often a hit, UNO is one of the more thrifty forms of fun family competition. Be creative, be thrifty and have some fun at your reunion!

Budgeting for Your Tennessee Reunion

As you begin to plan your family or military reunion, you will know you have costs that are best estimated and controlled with a reunion budget. We will provide some tips on planning for your budget in hopes it helps your reunion get off to an awesome start!

#1. Understand the basics to begin planning. You will want an approximate date of the reunion, rates change with seasons, an approximate number of people attending the reunion, and approximately how many days the reunion will last. Once you know these things you will know the size of Chalet Village Luxury Reunion Cabin you will need and we can give rates based on the season you are planning to gather.

#2 Loding will be your first expense, other “macro” expenses will include food costs, in the cabin and any catering or special services, along with any special services like a photographer.

#3 Add budget for “micro” expenses such as Decorations, Games, Prizes, Paper and Cleaning Items, other essentials.

#4 Consider an activity or two that the whole group will participate in and what costs might be associated. Reunions can be kept low budget with Uno challenges in our beautiful cabins! Play Bingo and Trivia, Puzzle Challenges and more.

#5 Determine a cost per member of the reunion. It may be better to have a cost per family. When choosing your cabin we can help you with the many dynamics that make up a family. Some family members may need bunk beds while others need special arrangements. Our reservation team is trained to help you choose the best cabin for your reunion.
