Now it gets real — we just had a late-winter Spirit Week themed around the Countdown to Opening Day because Wednesday, March 9 was exactly 100 days until camp starts.
Now it’s less than 100 days to our 100th summer. And with Spring in the air and a centennial spring in our step we’re excited to add to that ever-shortening countdown with live and in-person events!
So here it is — all that’s up and coming as of today’s writing (there may be more things so as always, stay tuned…)
Rescheduled from our winter reunions that were supposed to take place in January but got sidelined by omicron caution, we’re excited to announce dates and locations for our Spring Reunions.
Please join us for fun, fellowship, and to get in the ‘Ghany Spirit by adding this to your calendar and planning to come.
At these spirited gatherings registered campers will also receive their Exclusive 100th Anniversary Summer 2022 Tee! And that’s just a pretty blue I put in there to symbolize camp — I have no intention of telling you what this AMAZING tee shirt looks like. You’ll have to come to get yours in advance of camp (all campers will get one at camp this summer).
And we hope you will come because we so want to see you! And not just you, but all are welcome – campers, parents, friends, family, alumnae, and interested campers*.
Here are the dates and times with plenty of advance notice to get it on your calendar, make plans to meet up with camp friends, arrange rides, schedule off work, and get that homework done in advance! This is serious camp
business FUN people!
- Richmond, VA: Sunday, May 1st, St. Catherine’s School, 1-3pm.
- Washington, DC: Saturday, May 7th, Cabin John Park, Shelter I, Bethesda, 3-5pm.
New Camper Tea
Back by popular demand (and a very 1922 way to prepare for camp) Alumna and camp mom Taylor Kiland graciously hosts a New Camper Tea for all new campers in the greater Washington, DC area on Saturday, May 7th at 11:30am. Details are coming via email to those who live in the area. And as long as new campers are getting all prepped for camp, feel free to come to both the New Camper Tea and the reunion if you like.
If you can’t make it to one of these events never fear. We’re hosting Virtual Camper Meet-Ups this Spring as well to connect families who are interested in getting together or meeting one another (in personal or virtually) prior to camp starting. Registered families, look for information on this in your email!
We hope to see you at one of these events if you can make it, and if not – we can’t wait to give you 100 hellos and 100 hugs and 100 “it’s a welcomes” as you cross the Barge for ‘Ghany’s 100th summer!
In ‘Ghany Love,
— Elizabeth Shreckhise, Director, Camp Alleghany for Girls
