Is the real world starting to get you down? Do you need some R&R with your camp friends? Good news: Reunion is just around the corner.
Use this guide to prepare for a weekend in 21719.
You may drop your stuff off at your bunk, but we ask that you park your car in the lot outside of camp. Please do not park on any grass or walkways. If you are handicapped, you may park in the lot in front of the Dining Hall.
You will receive your name tag and bunk assignment at the Dining Hall when you arrive. You’ll also have the opportunity to purchase mementos and vote on the Circle Board ballot if you haven’t already done so online. Check-in begins at 4:00 PM and dinner will be at 7:00 PM.
Want to give back somehow to Circle? Perhaps you continued your Arts & Crafts skills beyond camp. Or maybe you can offer coveted items or services. We are looking for high quality items to include in this year’s raffle! In previous years, our most successful raffle and silent auction items have included gift cards to favorite restaurants or a spa day, sports memorabilia (need to think of the husbands and boyfriends, right?), and Camp Louise memorabilia. Bring your item(s) to check-in to be included. Winners will be announced on Saturday night after dinner. All purchasing and bidding needs to be completed before dinner on Saturday evening.
Towels, Sheets, Blankets- Oh my!
You are responsible for all pillows, linens, blankets, and towels during the weekend. Don’t forget to pack for cold weather! If you are traveling from far away and need help finding sheets/etc. to use at Reunion, or if you can bring extra sheets/etc. for someone to borrow, please email Andie Snyder.
Looking to add some gear to your camp wardrobe?
You’re in luck! This year we will once again have custom Circle clothing available to purchase on Saturday afternoon. Pants and shirts with a Circle Logo will be sold. A 10% discount will be available if you pay in cash, so come ready to shop!
We are so fortunate that Camp will be able to make the Adventure Park (the structure located on Field 1) available for use during Reunion! This was a new element in 2015 and has been a huge hit with campers and staff! The Adventure Park will be open from 1:30 – 3:00pm onSaturday, September 17. If you with to use the Adventure Park, a fee of $25 per person will be charged in order to cover the cost of staffing this activity and wear-and-tear on the equipment. Checks can be made payable directly to Camp Louise. Also, be sure to wear shoes that won’t fall off (sneakers, keens, etc. but no flip flops). Please contact Susan Vogel at email@example.com with any questions.
