Who are Alumni?
Alumni is considered to be participants involved in the summer programs at Camp Leelanau & Kohahna — former campers (over 18), counselor staff (current or past), Family Campers (over 18), and support staff (includes kitchen staff parents who have supported cleaning, maintenance, laundry, or office during the summer programming).
Our 100 Year Milestone!
The countdown is on and preparations are underway to mark the 100-year anniversaries of Camps Leelanau and Kohahna. In the sleepaway summer camp world, a centennial celebration is a major milestone … an achievement we’ll cheer, celebrate, and reflect upon.
Our camps’ history is rich in tradition (inspiring Council Fires, intense team competitions, and awesome trips are a few traditions that come immediately to mind) as well as uplifted thought and healing which is an everyday occurrence as Christian Science is our foundation and is practiced and witnessed continually. The past century has been a testament to Camps Leelanau & Kohahna’s principled founding and adherence to divine Truth, Love and one Mind.
So please make a note, mark a calendar, or send a reminder to the cloud … somehow Save the Date for each camp’s 100-year reunion. The first jubilant celebration will be over the long 2021 Labor Day weekend honoring Camp Leelanau for Boys. With a progressive “join when you can” start, the “Weekend” begins on Tuesday and will just keep building, as Leelanau Alum gather, towards a grand celebration on Sunday evening. No doubt it’ll be fun, adventurous, and certainly revitalizing as the guys pay tribute to 100 awesome years of camping.
Two years later in 2023, during the same multi-day weekend (and more), Camp Kohahna for Girls and Camp Leelanau for Girls will likewise celebrate their vast heritage with many fun, familiar, and festive activities.
Although it may seem a tad far off, help us spread the word by contacting all of your alumni friends. Together, let’s make each reunion a historic success!
