In a world currently defined by isolation and social distancing, let’s talk about reuniting!

We’re not going to belabor the current coronavirus situation, but suffice it to say, gathering together with our camp family and friends this fall might be EXACTLY what we need!

With that in mind, we are incredibly excited to release the sample schedule for the 2020 Camp Highlander Alumni Reunion!
