Dear Otterdale Families and Alumni:

 
The countdown is on for our Otterdale 60th Anniversary celebration! Plans are in place! We have a good group of registrations to date. If you haven't had a chance to contact a camp friend and register....stop procrastinating! Sign-up on the website.  Get ready to reconnect with friends, and to enjoy some camp activities.
 
I have included an overview schedule and a few thoughts. Hope to see you soon.
 
Sincerely,
Capt

Who is invited?
 
Friday afternoon and evening are reserved for current and alumni staff who will be preparing camp and programs for the next day. The focus on Saturday is to celebrate our 60 years of camping with a "Camp Day". Parents, campers, staff (past and current) are all welcome to enjoy a typical day at camp. "Typical" with activities, meals, songs, skits and more.
 
Who's running this show?
 
The weekend is being hosted by the amazing 2015 staff and some equally amazing staff alumni.
 
Food/Diet issue...no problem.
 
After you register, just let us know via email if you have any dietary requirements and we will make it work.
 
Can't make it?
 
Even if you can't make the reunion, we would love to hear from you. Send along an email note or letter with a camp reflection or two, and with what you are doing.  We will post it in Harrison Hall to share.
