Remember that alumnae are welcome at the girls’ Council Fire each Sunday. This summer the alums added rich comments to the “alumnae time” at Council Fire. They spoke about the importance of Kohahna or Leelanau for Girls in their life. Friendships are always the top of the list along with a nurturing environment to learn more about Christian Science. Also, mentioned was learning how to face challenges and stand up to fear. Campers love hearing from the alums! Please contact Pippi Rutledge ahead of time to let her know that you will be coming. Arrive about 6:30 as the hike up starts at 6:45.
Let us know if you plan to attend the reunion and we’ll start letting others know on this site!
From Peggy Hasting Sullivan (’60s) – after receiving the weekly summer alumnae update email. “Oh does that ever make me miss camp. Honestly I think about Kohahna at least once a day!”
Do you have any camp-related news you would like to share? Did you have any moments over the summer when you thought about your experience at camp? Often we have faced challenges and thought, “If it weren’t for camp, I would never have been able to do that!” Have you done anything over the last year that made you even more grateful for your camp experience? Have you had children at Leelanau or Kohahna recently, and if so, would you like to share their experiences with alums? If you have anything you would like to write about, please send it to [email protected] and we’ll see if we can post it on this page for all to read.

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.
