Alumni – Past Campers, Counselors, Teachers and Staff

In May of 1999, the Board of Trustees endorsed the formation of an alumni association comprised of former staff and campers.  The Alumni Association was established as a way to acknowledge and celebrate the role that the College Settlement has played in the lives of so many people for so many years, and as a way to continue to bring people together who wish to remain involved in the mission of the camps. Whether you spent time as a camp staff member, an Outdoor School visiting teacher, or a kid who came through our programs, we hope that your time at camp was meaningful and magical in some way… and we invite you to join us in celebrating that!

Click here to join our mailing list… in this form, you’ll tell us as much as you can about your connection to the camps.
