At times sometimes our Alumni don't come back to visit camp until long after they've left but we want to bring you back together sooner. We have had some single night events but are looking to grow the amount of events to bring our younger Alumni together sooner. We would love to grow our database to keep you involved, if you're interested in future events and information you can either fill out our 5 question survey or email Jen de Ridder at
