VP of Camping Message, Fall 2012

A message from

General Manager, Callum McKee 


We cannot believe, with a couple of years of planning already behind us, we are now less than a year and half away from the biggest alumni event of the century! The Camp Alumni Reunion is only 1 year, 4 months and 16 days, or 501 sleeps away!

As you've probably heard, we are pleased to be using the very large and conveniently located Bingeman's Conference Centre as the venue for this event on April 12, 2014. This is truly an evening you don't want to miss. You know how you often wistfully wonder what and how your friends from the past are doing now? Well, this is the opportunity you've been looking for to reconnect and catch up during a sit down dinner and evening program which is sure to take you happily rambling down memory lane and reminiscing till the wee hours.

A website page packed solid with information, updates, names of folks who have registered (with their permission, of course), local hotel discounts and more, will be launched in the spring of 2013. You'll want to visit often, and mark September 2013 on your calendar, which is the first opportunity to purchase on-line tickets. Based on feedback so far, we anticipate an overwhelming response (just like summer camp registration!) and with limited tickets available, we encourage you and your fellow camp folk to purchase them as soon as they are available to avoid disappointment!

We could use a bit of help getting ready for the event:

If you are interested in helping out in some capacity, we will have lots of little jobs that we could use some assistance with! Please let us know by contacting campalumni@ckwymca.ca

We are also looking for any camp memorabilia that you would be willing to share, either for the evening or to donate to our archives. We are constantly seeking old camp photos to scan (and return to you).

So, yes, someone in the crowd is SHOUTING...and SINGING and since it's a camp crowd, probably even SCREAMING and DANCING...but most of all HOPING that many, many of our old friends will join us to reconnect. We expect the laughter, screams of joy and shock, repeat after me songs, funky dances and crazy stories you've missed and yearned for will be recaptured during what promises to be an amazing evening!
