Only five more months until our BIG Camp Highlander Alumni Reunion! Have you registered yet? We asked some CH alums who are attending the reunion in September what they’re looking forward to the most. As you can imagine, pinpointing just a few things was a difficult task! One thing is for sure – it’s going to be an absolute blast!
I look forward to spending time in my favorite place with the best of friends and my camp family! There’s just nothing like being on the mountain, with your favorite people, making new memories and reminiscing of our time at CH. CAN’T WAIT!!!
At the last reunion, it made me so happy to look around and see so many other people who love Camp Highlander like I do. Being surrounded by all of these people who understand my love and appreciation of Highlander is my happy place.
I’m looking forward to shouting Gus’s in the dining hall, sitting under a tree in my crazy Creek singing along to campfire, talking to G, getting all dressed up for a night of EP, and being on the mountain with people I truly see as family. There is no one part of the day that is better than the rest. It is all part of the magic of the mountain that really makes Camp Highlander a place like no other.
For me, being on the mountain is so freeing. Being back there with friends who, over the years, have become family just makes it that much more special. It doesn’t really matter what we are doing; it’s all fun because we are there and can just let go and be kids again!
I’m looking forward to Gaynell ringing the bell and our singing grace before meals!

What do I look forward to most about the reunion? Besides walking all around camp and checking out all the nice improvements and also seeing what areas still look the same. I am most excited to see the people. I look forward to hanging out with everyone at the usual places in Box Canyon, Tenny Top, the Slab, in the gym, and at campfire listening to my favorite music. I look forward to seeing the current staff and owners and hear how camp is today, and to seeing everyone who went to camp when I was there from ’92-’01, and I look forward to seeing people who were at camp in the 80’s and hear their crazy stories from the past. One more thing I look forward to is taking my first step onto camp that taking a deep breath and smelling the fresh Highlander air!

I look most forward to square dancing, laying on the tennis courts with the stars out, sharing camp memories and stories, and being part of the WK Alumni team bringing home another win!
I cannot wait until campfire! Campfire at the last reunion was, by far, the best one EVER! Bruce and Greg didn’t stop until every last request was played! It was epic!
Well, of course, campfire. But more than anything, for just a few moments, transporting back to summer 1985.

I’m most excited for the nighttime cabin talks and seeing many of my friends who weren’t able to make the last one!
I’m looking forward to getting silly with old friends and to being a kid again for the weekend … and to beating everyone at foosball!
