Alumni Weekend @ YMCA Camp Mason
Sep 29 @ 5:00 pm – Oct 1 @ 4:00 pm

Did you love camp? Do you miss those days you spent frolicking with your friends on the ‘island’ or at the current Camp Mason site in Hardwick? Do you wish you could see your old camp friends again, all together in one place?  If the answer is ‘YES’ to any of these questions, then register yourself, your family and your old camp friends for the 2017 Alumni Reunion weekend!

We kindly ask that you consider making a suggested donation of $100 per adult and $50 per child (ages 4 and up) to help cover the costs of this special event.  Your donation will also help us provide scholarship assistance for children who cannot afford the regular camp fees. We will also be having a terrific auction to raise money for our camper scholarship fund, so if you would like to donate a basket/gift certificate/prize to the auction, please contact Erin at erin@campmason.org. If you would like to make a tax-deductible cash donation to help kids, please click on the Donate Now button on the right side of this page. Thank you for your support of our future campers!

The reunion schedule is packed with activities for all ages, great food, a service project, and a rousing campfire are just a few of the highlights. This weekend is open to all former campers, staff members, significant others, and family members.

Thank you so much for your generosity and we look forward to seeing you at Alumni Weekend!
