2019 Alumni Weekend

Return. Reminisce. Reconnect. Reciprocate.

 August 23 – 25, 2019

 

 

It was many moons ago when Betty John… in appreciation of the long-term devotion to camp by members of the CHMK community… established an Alumni Reunion Weekend.  In doing this, she created a fantastic opportunity for alumni to return to the little ol’ Newbury… to breath the fresh air… to feel the warmth of the campfire… to gaze up at starry skies… to swim in the soothing waters Founder’s Lake.

But beyond the obvious allure, reunion weekend is also a chance to bring to life once again, if even for a moment, those incredible feelings of childhood associated with cherished memories of being at camp.  Yet camp is more than just a memory!  It not only exists in the hearts and minds of alumni… but also in the commitment of today’s campers, who arise at bugle call each morning to enthusiastically sustain its legacy.

Camp Ho Mita Koda remains healthy and strong!  It’s no secret why… the spirit of camp extends beyond the boundaries of any one summer… spanning generations or caring alumni who ‘remember the times’ they had here.  On behalf of the Alumni Association, and in conjunction with the current leadership of Camp Ho Mita Koda, we extend to you this invitation to join us on our ‘sacred tribal grounds’ for reminiscence and celebration.

RATES & LODGING

Immerse yourself in the rustic coziness of Camp Ho Mita Koda.  Staying in one of the cabins gets you the convenience of a roof over your head, plus all the sights, sounds and smells of life at camp.  This experience is sure to awaken many memories of former days.  Cabins will be set up as they are for camp, you may be sharing with other folks, so arrive early for the prime bunk! We do have tenting options available.
